      Longtime Delegate Lacey Putney Announces Retirement

      Bedford, VA - Longtime Delegate Lacey Putney has announced he's retiring after more than half a century in office.

      The 19th District independent from Bedford was first elected in 1961. He says at the time he had no intention of running for a second term.

      Though Putney is an independent, he caucuses with the Republicans.

      He is chairman of the powerful Appropriations Committee.

      Putney turns 85 years old in June.
