Jim Galloway brings us the news of his letter to the House:
“The last 10 years have been quite a journey. During that time I have had the privilege of serving as your minority whip and then as majority leader. Leading our caucus has been and will remain my highest honor. Thank you for allowing me to do so.
Today I spoke to my local rotary so my constituents would know first, and I now want each of you to know that this will be my last term in the House of Representatives. 10 years is a long time of service, and I firmly believe this is the appropriate time for me to move on. While I certainly am sad to see this chapter in my life close, I look forward to starting a new one.
I am proud of everything we have accomplished and will continue to work toward maintaining Republican control in Georgia and preserving the ideals for which we have each sacrificed so much.”
That last paragraph is the kicker for me. Sounds like the kind of stuff he says when he campaigns, but doesn’t resemble much of how he has led the house when governing.
I can’t say I’ll miss him much. And there’s still a couple people I wish he would take with him.
