Rep. Mark Murdock, R-Perham, announced today that he will not seek re-election this fall.
Murdock is serving his second term. He is currently vice chair of the House Transportation Policy and Finance Committee. In a news release, Murdock said he wants to spend more time with his family, including his wife Pat.
“After some long discussions with Pat, other family members and close friends over the holidays, we decided four years at the Capitol is enough,” Murdock said. “I never went to St. Paul with the intention of being a career politician. This is a citizen Legislature and it is someone else’s turn to have the honor of representing the people of District 10B.”
