Patterson’s official announcement comes after 16 years of serving in the city government of Oxford. Patterson spent eight years serving on the City Board of Oxford before running for mayor, a position he will have had for eight years by the time he steps down in 2017.

At Tuesday night’s Oxford City Board meeting, Patterson said that while he has enjoyed and appreciated his time with the city, he feels like it’s time for someone else to take the helm.
