First-term Salt Lake County Councilman Jani Iwamoto will not seek re-election this fall.

Iwamoto, who has represented east-side District 4 for four years, said Tuesday that personal obligations will preclude her from running again.

"I have some immediate priorities that need to be addressed," she said. "Although I have had much support, I do not feel I can give the effort necessary to run a campaign and to attend to my present duties on the council."

One of four Democrats — and the lone woman — on the nine-member council, Iwamoto defeated incumbent Mark Crockett in 2008. He is now a GOP candidate for county mayor.
