State Senator Andy Berke announced Tuesday that he will not seek re-election to the State Senate District 10 seat he has held since 2007...So, in other words, he's giving up his chance to be one of a handful of Democrats in a Republican dominated Senate in order to serve *cough*Mayor*cough* in new *cough*Mayor*cough* ways.
...“Although I am not running for re-election, I am dedicated to growing jobs in our area and working on issues that affect my neighbors,” Berke said. “I am excited to continue to serve Southeast Tennessee, and I look forward to new challenges and opportunities.”
