GREENVILLE, Mich.— The man representing Greenville in Congress will not be running for re-election.

Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI) announced his retirement Monday, issuing the following statement:

“Today, I am announcing that I will not seek re-election to the United States House of Representatives.  This decision was reached after much consideration and discussion with my family.

“Serving in Congress is the great honor of my professional life.  I am deeply grateful to the people of the 4th Congressional District for placing their trust in me.  Over the years, their unwavering support has been a source of strength, purpose and inspiration.

“During the next nine months, I will redouble my efforts to grow our economy and expand opportunity for every American by fixing our broken tax code, permanently solving physician payments for seniors, strengthening the social safety net and finding new markets for U.S. goods and services.”

Camp is also the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.  He’s served the 4th Congressional District for more than 20 years.

“Residents throughout mid and northern Michigan have come to know and trust Dave Camp for more than two decades, and our state is going to miss his steady leadership in Washington, D.C. On behalf of our entire state, I thank Dave Camp for his service and I wish him and his family nothing but the best for the future,” said Gov. Snyder.
