TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The only Democrat from Johnson County in either chamber of the Kansas Legislature has decided against
seeking re-election.

Mike Slattery, of Mission, says he's giving up his House seat because he plans to go to graduate school to study business
management and law. Slattery is a construction projects manager and
has served in the House since 2009.

Johnson County is the state's most populous county. Seven of the 40 state senators and 22 of the 125 House members represent part of the northeastern Kansas county.

Slattery is the son of Jim Slattery, a Democrat who served in both the Kansas Legislature and the U.S. House.

The Kansas House minority leader's office say Mike Slattery
hasn't decided which university he'll attend but has been accepted
at Georgetown, in Washington.
