Fossett was formerly the City Solicitor in Covington and later became the City Manager, where he served in that position from 2005-2009.
"After discussing the issue with my family and business partners, I have decided not to run for re-election to Fort Thomas City Council. At this time, I believe its important for me to focus my time and energy on my two growing businesses -- Strategic Advisers (a public relations and digital media firm) and Omni Advocacy Group (a government relations firm)," said Fossett.
"From my short time serving on this body and my past experience in public management, I recognize that our city is in very capable hands -- both in terms of its elected officials and its management and staff. I have enjoyed my time serving on city council and will continue to serve until I finish out my current term at the end of the year."
