The last woman on the Wicomico County Council is leaving.

Stevie Prettyman announced that she will not seek re-election.

She told the Salisbury Daily Times that she had accomplished a lot during her four terms on the council that she did not make the decision lightly.

Prettyman said that it was time to move on with other aspects of her life.

She added that she was announcing early enough so that others would have time to think about running for her seat in the Second District.

Her announcement follows that of Sheree Sample-Hughes, who said in July she will run for a seat in the House of Delegate, and Gail Bartkovich, who said in August said she would not seek reelection.

The Second District covers towns that reach from Sharptown and Mardela Springs to a part of Hebron and sections of Fruitland.
