The Watertown Daily Times reports:
Dierdre K. Scozzafava has decided that her 12th year in the state Assembly will be her last. She said Wednesday that she will not seek re-election in the 118th Assembly District.
“If you go back to the run for Congress, I was really looking to do something different and go in a different direction and be challenged differently,” she said Wednesday. “That hasn’t changed. As much as I’ve enjoyed my time in the state Assembly, I think it’s time for me to take a breather and go in a different direction.”
Presumably Scozzafava will be devoting her time to writing a gripping memoir.
