CARRBORO, N.C. — After 10 years on the job, Carrboro's mayor said he needs a break.

Mayor Mike Nelson said he is not planning to run for re-election.

Elected in 1995, Nelson was the first openly gay mayor in North Carolina.

Last year, he led Carrboro's effort to repeal the state's Defense of Marriage Act.
