LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Current Speaker of the House and longtime Wyoming lawmaker Rep. Kermit Brown will not seek re-election.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (https://bit.ly/1q691ZL) that the Laramie Republican announced Thursday that he won’t seek public office in 2016. Brown has served in House for 12 years, currently as the Speaker and previously as the majority leader.

President of the Senate Phil Nicholas, also a Laramie Republican, says Brown is an asset that will be hard to replace.

Laramie Sen. Chris Rothfuss, a Democrat, says he appreciates the way Brown has been willing to listen to both sides and support what’s in the best interest of the people of Wyoming.

When asked what he will feel when the Legislature is back in session, Brown said, “I don’t know. I’ll be skiing.”
