North Adams Mayor Richard Alcombright, who has been the mayor of Massachusetts' smallest city since winning election in 2009, said Thursday he won't seek a fifth term this fall. Alcombright, citing the 25-year term of predecessor John Barrett, said the city has "missed an entire generation of leaders.  As we approach the third decade of this century, it is very clear to me that it is time for North Adams to move into its exciting future with new leadership and new energy."

"I am confident that much of what I have achieved will far outlast me and I am certain that I have established a gateway to a brighter future," Alcombright said in a statement.
