Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) announced Thursday that he will resign his House seat at the end of June.

“This week I sent a letter to Governor Herbert indicating my intention to resign from Congress effective June 30, 2017,” Chaffetz wrote in a letter to his constituents.

Chaffetz said he viewed his service in Congress as a temporary position, not a lifetime career.

“Serving you in the U.S. House of Representatives for nearly nine years has been a rare honor and privilege. When I first ran for Congress in 2008 I promised I would get in, serve, and get out. I told voters I did not believe Congress should be a lifetime career. I knew from day one that my service there would not last forever,” he wrote.
“After careful consideration and long discussion with my wife, Julie, we agree the time has come for us to move on from this part of our life,” he continues.

    Why doesn’t he wait until the term that he was elected for is up? I smell a rat here.

    3. Retired says:

      Maybe he wants to get away from the Swamp Rats ????

      1. The Redhawk says:

        Or Join them in Lobby land???

        1. Retired says:

          It did not say where he is going unless I missed it .

      2. goldie says:

        I understand that, but he should have thought of that before running for reelection. I think that unless his reasons are serious, he should honor the contract he made with his constituents when they voted for him and remain until his term has expired.

        1. Retired says:

          It will be interesting to see where ho goes for the next job .

    I hate to see Representative Chaffetz resign and leave congress.He is an honest straight shooter who works very hard.But I do agree with him that congress should be a temporary stop on the road of life.It was never meant to be a life time position.That is why we need term limits.There is moss growing on some of those old fossils who have been occupying space for decades.The problem is they work very little make a big salary and will not vote for term limits.Some how we must get it passed.

        Um, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, even with the occasional hour or two on an occasional Monday or Friday does not constitute a full “Four Days” of actual “Work”
