Posted: Updated:

After serving 6 terms in city and county government, Laurel Mayor Melvin Mack will soon be out of the public eye.

Mack placed fourth in Tuesday night's election for Ward 7 Councilman. Mayor Mack said he's been wanting to get out of politics for sometime now.

He said being mayor of the city in which he was raised was an opportunity that he never dreamed he would have.

"I never thought in 10,000 years that I would be able to vote in Laurel, Mississippi not only to come in and be the mayor for two terms and serving public office for nearly thirty years," said, Mayor Mack.
