I just returned from a two-day minication to find that Del. Kris Amundson is retiring after a decade in office. I’m always of mixed emotion when a legislator who I admire retires. On the one hand, it’s a loss for me as somebody who feels like I’m being represented. On the other hand, it’s often a big quality of life improvement for that legislator. Kris is a great asset to the state, but I think she’ll be a great asset to the state within or without the legislature. Some people are just like that.
