Rep. Chris DeLaForest (R-Andover) announced that he will not run for re-election this year.

DeLaForest citied the difficulty of balancing his political, professional and family commitments as the primary reason for his decision.

“I’m just not in the same place I was six years ago,” DeLaForest said in a press release. “Over time it became exceedingly difficult to meet my goals in these three areas. I realized it was time for a change.”

DeLaForest said his future plans include spending time watching Little League baseball, attending swimming lessons and taking a family vacation to recharge his batteries and plot new goals.

“While I have very much enjoyed elective office, its is now time for me to return to private life and begin the next chapter in my journey,” he said.
