Fox 2 News has confirmed Detroit City Council President Pro-Tem Gary Brown will not be making a re-election bid.

"After careful consideration with my family, I have decided not to seek a second term on Detroit City Council," Brown wrote on his Facebook page Tuesday afternoon.  "I am thankful for the overwhelming support Detroiters have given me."

Brown says he will concentrate on three areas for the remainder of his term.

"My focus will remain on the three areas I set out to address as an elected official: Improving public safety, educating our kids and operating a fiscally-responsible government that delivers quality services," Brown wrote.

Council President Charles Pugh and members Ken Cockrel, Junior, Kwame Kenyatta and JoAnn Watson have also chosen not to run again.

Brown was elected to a four-year term in 2009.
