State Rep. John Townsend of Fond du Lac to retire (5:02 p.m. 10/19/09)

Madison (AP) — Republican state Rep. John Townsend of Fond du Lac will not run for re-election next year.

Townsend was first elected to the state Assembly in 1998.

He announced his decision not to run on Monday. Democrats hold a majority of the Assembly’s seats with 52 seats. Townsend is one of 46 Republicans and there is one independent.

Townsend says 12 years in the Assembly is enough. The 71-year-old Townsend says he plans to retire and spend more time with his family and travel.
