Rep. Tom Huntley (DFL-Duluth) announced Tuesday he will not seek re-election to the Minnesota House of Representatives.

Huntley, whose district includes East Duluth, has served 11 terms in the Legislature and is chair of the House Health and Human Services Finance Committee.

"It has been an honor of a lifetime to serve the people of Duluth and Minnesota at the State Capitol," said Huntley. "I am humbled by this opportunity and the chance I have had to work on issues so vital to the health of our people and state."

Huntley defeated Republican Therese Bower by a 71 to 29 percent margin in the 2012 election in District 7A.  The next election is in November 2014, with a new representative taking office in January 2015.
