HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A longtime member of the state House of Representatives says he will not run for his seat again, ending 36 years in the chamber.

House Transportation Committee Chairman Nick Micozzie said Monday that he’ll leave the 163rd District seat when his current two-year term ends Nov. 30.

The Delaware County Republican also spent 19 years as an Upper Darby councilman.

In a statement on his website, Micozzie quotes the Kenny Rogers’ song The Gambler, and says it’s time for him to fold his cards, walk away and not run. Micozzie says one of his greatest accomplishments was helping to provide leadership in passing a massive transportation funding bill in November.

Micozzie was also the longtime chairman of the House Insurance Committee.
