State Rep. Ron Burns said today that he’s not ready to say whether he’ll seek a second term in the 77th District.
“I’m still on the fence,” said the freshman Republican who knocked out veteran Democrat Roger Michele in 2006 to claim the seat.
Burns said he hopes to decide soon, but isn’t sure when he’ll know.
“I’ve got some irons in the fire and I’ve got to wait ‘til those flesh out,” Burns said.
Those irons don’t relate to politics, he said.
Burns is capable of walking away from the seat. He quit the City Council in 2005 after a single term, despite having wide support among Democrats as well as Republicans.
Democrat Christopher Wright is aiming to win the district come November. It doesn't appear there are any other Democrats vying for the opportunity.
