Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert says he will leave office by end of the day Friday

In a speech that was more political launch pad than polite farewell, Mayor Tom Leppert told the Dallas City Council on Wednesday that he will leave office by the end of the day Friday.

He also promised "in the next several days" to announce plans for his political future, widely understood to be a run for the 2012 Republican nomination for U.S. Senate.

Leppert, who leaves office four months shy of completing his first term, said he believes history will look back on the past four years as a time of great progress in Dallas, and he thanked the city's residents for electing him.
