MILTON -- State Rep. Andy Jorgensen has decided against a run for a state Senate seat, and will instead run for re-election in his 43rd Assembly District.
Jorgensen, a Democrat from Milton, had been mentioned as a possible candidate for the 15th Senate district seat, which is open following Sen. Tim Cullen's decision to not run for re-election.

But instead, the chief listened and found a way to accommodate the concerns of many in the community.
