City hall staffers say Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley won't run for a sixth term, but the mayor has refused to confirm or deny the reports.

"I've been told by members of his staff that they are looking elsewhere for employment, and he's shut down his political fund-raising operation," said Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky."There's just one indisputable conclusion: He's not running."

A local television station reported that Bradley, 74, will join an international law firm in San Francisco.

Still, Bradley refused at a Friday news conference to disclose his plans.
