WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

The Wichita Falls City Council has a vacant seat. 

On Tuesday, District Three Councilor Brian Hooker's term ended. Hooker fulfilled his full term and cannot seek re-election due to the state's term limits. 

Hooker said the most difficult part of the job was helping the city get through the drought and the projects that came with it. His term began in the middle of a drought and significant changes took place while he was in office.

He said Tuesday was bittersweet, but that he's ready for the next chapter of his life.

"I love what I've done and I'm looking forward to being able to continue to do everything else I love to do," Hooker said. "Spend time with my family and work on my businesses."

In a press release, Hooker said, "There have been incredible things happen since the drought, and I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to make a positive impact."

Hooker said he wants to be remembered for his dedicated service and added that he looks forward to continuing to be a part of the community that he was born and raised in.

Hooker served the city for six years and was instrumental in supporting initiatives like the restrictions on texting while driving and the smoking ban. 

News Channel 6 will continue to follow the steps to fill the now vacant position.
