MUNCIE — Muncie Mayor Dennis Tyler announced Friday that he will not seek re-election after serving two terms.

Tyler made the announcement to a crowd of officials, supporters and family at City Hall.

“At 76 years old I’m at a place in my life where I want to spend more quality time with my wife, my children and my grandchildren,” Tyler said in explaining his decision.

The mayor's time in office has included some major projects, as well as an ongoing FBI investigation.

“I will and they will continue to champion the community,” Tyler said to his department heads in attendance, adding that there was a lot he hoped to accomplish in his 11 months left in office. His administration took over the city in 2012.
