Napoli Won't Seek Another Term
March 20, 2008, 7:16 AM
State Senator Bill Napoli of Rapid City could run for re-election for another two-year term.
The District 35 Republican says it's time to get out of the way, so he won't run for re-election and instead will retire from politics.
Napoli first went to the capital city in 1972 and spent 22 years as a lobbyist.
He then served eight years in the House of Representatives, with two of them as assistant majority leader, and has spent the last six years in the Senate.
Several other veterans won't be back in Pierre next year because state lawmakers are limited to eight consecutive years in the House or Senate.
