Rep. Clark Johnson (DFL-North Mankato) announced Monday he would not seek re-election in 2018.
In a statement on his Facebook page, the three-term House member thanked his supporters and those who have helped in the Legislature.
“I will continue to work hard to represent the people of District 19A over this new year and in the 2018 session, but it is time for me to move on and give someone else the opportunity to represent us in the Minnesota House,” Johnson said. “Thanks very much to everyone who has helped me serve in the Legislature. It's an honor and a joy representing District 19A and I'm truly thankful for being given the opportunity to do so.”
Johnson came to the Legislature in 2013 after winning a special election to fill the seat left vacant when former Rep. Terry Morrow resigned.
He currently serves on House committees in several areas including agriculture, environment and transportation.
