Ogden not to run for mayor again

8:06 am on 10 October 2010

Defeated two-term Lower Hutt Mayor David Ogden says he won't run for mayor again.

Mr Ogden was beaten by Ray Wallace by about 5000 votes. Though he is disappointed, he says Mr Wallace ran a good campaign and won fairly.

He says running for mayor is a tiring job.

Mr Ogden has been elected to the district health board and says he is looking forward to working there and having more spare time.
