Rep. Ross Announces He Will Not Be Seeking Re-election in 2018
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Dennis A. Ross (R-FL-15), Senior Deputy Majority Whip, today announced he will not be seeking re-election in 2018.
“It has been the honor and privilege of a lifetime to serve my community as a Member of Congress and I am grateful for the encouragement and input of family, friends, and neighbors over the years. After thoughtful prayer and consideration, my wife Cindy and I decided that I will not seek re-election for a fifth-term in office,” said Congressman Ross. “I am grateful for this incredible opportunity to serve and I look forward to the next chapter of my life which will include, in some way, continued public service.”
“I never viewed this amazing opportunity as a job or a career. My home has been and will continue to be in Lakeland, Florida. I look forward to returning to the practice of law and to pursuing opportunities to increase civic education for our youth, and young adults, and with that encourage more engagement and participation of future generations in government.”
