MURRAY, KY- A long-serving state representative will not run for reelection, but he’s not getting out of politics.

5th District state Rep. Kenny Imes told Local 6 Wednesday evening that he will not seek a fourth term.

Imes served a total of eight terms in his time in Kentucky’s House of Representatives. First, from 1972 to 1979. Then, he served from 2013 to 2018.
