Does this signal that the "conflict of interest caucus" is feeling the heat? DOVER
– Veteran legislator and Bond Bill Committee power Rep. Roger P. Roy announced today that he will not seek re-election to the seat he has held for 30 years.
Roy’s announcement stunned his colleagues, who clearly had not expected it.
Sherwood Park Democrat Rep. Robert F. Gilligan, the longest-serving member of the House, was so emotional that he could not join in the accolades to Roy and fled to his office.
Roy, a Limestone Hills Republican, said his three decades in the Legislature took him away from his family and that it is time to retire.
