Rep. Whitfield will not seek reelection
By Marty Irby
U.S. Representative Ed Whitfield (R-KY-01) announced today he will not seek a 12th term in Congress.
"Representing the people of the 1st District for 21 years has been an honor," said Whitfield. "I will cherish forever the countless opportunities to work with them to nurture and strengthen the 35 counties comprising Kentucky's First District.
"Among many memorable achievements, I am particularly proud of helping to establish the Federal Health Benefit Program for employees of the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant; creating a National Forest at Land between the Lakes; providing much needed funding for our troops at Fort Campbell; promoting the utilization of our abundant fossil fuels; and ensuring the humane treatment of animals.
"My staff in Kentucky and Washington D.C. has been superb. Their commitment to excellence allowed me to serve the people of the 1st District to the best of my ability.
"I want to thank my colleagues in the U.S. House and Senate for the many courtesies they extended to me. To Connie, my wife, my heartfelt thanks for her resilience and her many contributions. I also thank my mother for her unwavering support.
"While many Americans are frustrated with the institution of Congress, I still believe that politics is a worthy vocation and I know many men and women of character will always be willing to serve."
Winston Churchill once said, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. Politics is and will always be an honorable way to serve."
