PORTLAND — City Councilor Dan Skolnik won’t seek re-election to the District 3 seat this fall, he announced today in a written statement.

He said his law practice and a new technology business venture won’t allow him to run a campaign and fully represent his constituents.

Skolnik is finishing his first three-year term. District 3 encompasses the southwestern portion of the city, from Brighton Avenue and Woodford Street to the South Portland city line.

Skolnik thanked his supporters and said he would remain active in community issues.
