Democratic leader retires

    Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) House member Les Gara announced he would not seek re-election to another two year term.

    At least nine House members have announced they will not seek re-election or are running for state Senate this year.  Four Senators have announced they won't seek re-election.  Two of them are running for Lt. Governor instead.

    Gara was first elected in 2002.  Several democrats are running for the seat which is considered a safe democratic seat.  Gara said Zack Fields, one of those democrats, would do a good job.
