Rep. Sam Kito III ended months of speculation in a Monday interview with the Juneau Empire by declaring he will not run for re-election this fall.

 

“As of last Friday, my position is that I am not intending on running for either the House or the Senate,” Kito said in a Monday interview.

How firm is that decision?

“I guess I’d say very close to 100 percent,” he said.

He will remain in office and continue to serve his district until the end of the term, he said.
