New Port Richey mayor won't seek re-election

NEW PORT RICHEY — After serving one term as mayor, Bob Consalvo will not seek re-election in April.

Consalvo, 72, said that after decades of service to the city he is ready to step back and enjoy life.

"I just think it's time to have some fun. I want to travel," he said. "I am proud of my service to the city and believe it's in a great place moving forward."

The city has been a part of Consalvo's life for decades. He worked in the parks and recreation department for 27 years, 26 as director. After retirement, he served a term on the city council with two years as deputy mayor, and then won the mayor's seat unopposed in 2011.

Former deputy Mayor Rob Marlowe is the only person who has so far filed to run for mayor in the April 8 election.
