U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, a Republican who represents Kentucky’s 4th Congressional District, announced Tuesday that he is resigning from his seat immediately.
In December Davis had announced that he would not be seeking re-election for a fifth term in Congress.
At the time he had cited needing to spend more time with his family as his reason for not seeking re-election.
In a statement Tuesday, Davis wrote, â€œfamily health issue has developed that will demand significantly more of my time to assist.
â€œ As a result, I cannot continue to effectively fulfill my obligations to both my office and my family. Family must and will come first.
Davisâ€™ full statement:Â â€œI thank the people of Kentuckyâ€™s Fourth District for the honor of serving as their Congressman over the last eight years.
â€œWhen I was a Cadet at West Point, I internalized the words of the U.S. Military Academyâ€™s motto, â€˜Duty, Honor, Country.â€™ Next, I learned that success was based on honoring God, Family, and Work, in that order. In December 2011, I decided that in order to honor those values, I needed to retire from Congressional service so I could more effectively serve my family as a husband and father.
â€œThose priorities continue to guide my decisions. Recently, a family health issue has developed that will demand significantly more of my time to assist. As a result, I cannot continue to effectively fulfill my obligations to both my office and my family. Family must and will come first.
