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.
