Jefferson County Board of Education member Debbie Wesslund won’t seek re-election this year.Wesslund has for eight years represented the board's third district, which covers northeastern Jefferson County.She says the decision to not run for another term involved a lot of thought. But she adds that she's relieved to make the announcement.“Eight years I think is a pretty good run, I think," she says. "I have made some priorities on some things and I feel good about the progress of the school system in the last several years and I think I am ready to contribute in another way.”Wesslund declined to comment on who may be interested in running for her board seat, and she has not ruled out running for another office.
