Just in from state Rep. Ron Burns, the first-term Republican who represents the 77th District:
It is with deep regret that I will not seek re-election as your state representative for the 77th Assembly District of Connecticut. I would like to thank the Bristol Boys & Girls Club for affording me the time to campaign and serve the constituents of the 77th assembly district. I would also like to thank the Republican Town Committee, the House Republicans and my family and my constituents for their support over the past one and one-half years. It is my privilege to serve you.
It has been a very difficult decision not to seek a second term. As much as I want to seek re-election, my current situation will not allow it. Over the past two months I have given much thought about how to best serve my constituents of the 77th district and my constituents at the Boys & Girls Club. Through that process, based on my current situation, I have concluded that I would not be able to perform an effective job as a State Representative and as a leader of the Boys & Girls Club.
Once again, I would like to thank all those who have supported me. The opportunity to serve you was a rewarding experience. In the future, if my situation changes and my party is interested, I will be more than willing to serve again.
