OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A Republican state representative from Yukon says he will not seek a fifth term in office.

Rep. Colby Schwartz told The Associated Press on Monday that he plans to leave the Legislature when his term ends in November.

His House District 43 is located entirely in Canadian County and includes the communities of Yukon and Mustang.

Schwartz was first elected in 2006 and was unopposed in 2008 and 2012. He won re-election in 2010 with more than 80 percent of the vote.

Schwartz is a former pharmaceutical sales representative and staff member for then-Lt. Gov. Mary Fallin. He currently owns his own health care consulting firm specializing in the liability insurance market.
