Iowa City Mayor Matt Hayek will seek another term as mayor in January, he said Wednesday.

He is currently in his first term as mayor.

"I'm excited about the direction that the city is headed in," he said. "I think our new management team is off to a strong start, and I want to do what I can to help it succeed."

Hayek said some of the most important issues he would like to work on include continuing economic development and expansion of the city's tax base.

City Councilor Regenia Bailey will not seek another term next year, she said.

Bailey, the council's lone opponent of the 21-ordinance, said the ruling did not have anything to do with her decision to leave the council.

"I feel like I have accomplished a lot of the things I set out to do," said Bailey, who is serving her second term on the council.

She said she plans to focus more on community and state service, as well as her business.
