I wanted to share with you the news that, after much discussion with my family, I will not be seeking re-election to the 49th Senate District this fall.
The love of my life, Sharon, my wife of 57 years, is now dealing with several health issues and it is my desire and responsibility to spend more time with her and my family.
I have loved my Senate career and feel I have served with honor and integrity. I accomplished more than I ever could have dreamed. I am especially proud to be known as the “Father of Hospice,” having passed the first hospice law in the nation.
