Cedar Falls Mayor Jon Crews is ending his 15th term in office. He decided to retire instead of facing a run-off election with Cedar Falls School board member Jim Brown.

Crews says, " I consider myself lucky because I've had far more good days on the job than bad ones."

Crews made headlines in 1971 when he was elected mayor at the age of 25. Iowa Public Radio's Pat Blank  talks with Crews about his career and his future plans.
