(WASHINGTON) Missouri’s third district congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer who represents Jefferson, Franklin and nine other counties says he will not seek
re-election and will retire from office when the current session ends in December 2024. Luetkemeyer has served in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2009.
The 71 year old republican says his reasons for retiring are simple.
According to Luetkemeyer, working to re-vamp the Department of Housing and Urban Development is one of his favorite accomplishments.
We asked the congressman if he will put his support behind anyone in particular to replace him.
Prior to his time in the U-S House of Representatives, Luetkemeyer served as a member of the Missouri House of Representatives. Luetkemeyer and his wife Jackie reside near St. Elizabeth in Miller County.
