Rep. Harry Moberly of Richmond (right) has been in the legislature for 31 years, including 14 as chairman of the House Appropriations Committeee.
The Democrat says he wants to concentrate more on his job as executive vice-president at Eastern Kentucky University.
“Continuing to stay, I think, prevents some new ideas and new blood coming up here from Madison County. It’s also been very difficult for me to fulfill my full job responsibilities at EKU and further my career in higher education staying up here,” he said.
