COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) – Longtime Council Bluffs Mayor Tom Hanafan has no plans to seek re-election in November.  Hanafan announced his intentions today (Tuesday). He says the long hours of dealing with the Missouri River flooding in 2011 made him think about leaving his post. He also says he’s looking forward to spending more time with his family.

The 65-year-old Hanafan has been mayor since his appointment in 1985. He won his first mayoral election in 1988.
