Today I announced that I will not be running for re-election to the state senate in 2012.
While I have mixed emotions about this decision, I know it will always be the right thing to do by putting my family first and getting back to my business which I have had to set aside for over a year as your state senator.
During my term, I have strived to bring a high-level of energy and intensity around the pro-business and pro-family issues I campaigned on. However, I cannot in good conscience make that same commitment for another term, as it would be unfair to my wife, Emily, and my sons, Randy and Justin, who have been greatly impacted by the commitment necessary, not to mention my business partners and customers, who also have been so gracious and understanding in my absence.
I am incredibly grateful for the privilage and honor the amazing people of District 9 have given to me, and would not want to tarnish that by giving anything less than my all-out best effort, which I can and will commit to continue for another year.
Thank you for your trust and confidence and, as always, please let me know when you have any comments or concerns in Concord.
