U.S. Congressman Dan Kildee has announced that he will not seek re-election when his term ends in January of 2025.
The 65-year-old Congressman says a cancer diagnosis earlier this year gave him an opportunity to evaluate his path, leading to the decision. Kildee has since undergone treatment and surgery, and says he is now cancer-free.
He first took Congressional office in 2012, and currently represents Michigan’s recently redrawn 8th district. Kildee says he isn’t retiring, and that he will continue to serve mid-Michigan outside of elected office.
