State Rep. Richard Floyd, R-Chattanooga, said Thursday that he is not seeking re-election to the General Assembly in November.
“The desire to spend more time with my family and the need to properly recover from recent surgery has prompted me to not seek re-election,” Floyd said, according to a news release.
Floyd said that he wouldn’t be able to express his “deepest appreciation” to his constituents for the “great privilege” of being allowed to represent District 27. He said he’d always be “grateful” to everyone who God placed in his life to help him in his campaigns.
“Serving in our state government will always remain one of my life’s greatest experiences,” Floyd said in the release. “I pray I have served you honestly, fairly and with integrity. Thank you for honoring me with your trust.”
