Rep. Fabrizio to conclude House service in 2018

ERIE, Jan. 29 – The following statement is from Rep. Florindo "Flo" Fabrizio of Erie:

"After considerable deliberation and consultation, with family, friends, and others, I have decided not to seek re-election to a ninth term as State Representative from the Second Legislative District.

"My experience as a State Representative has been both humbling and exhilarating.

"It has been a privilege, and above all, a great honor to serve the people of the district, as well as the nearly 13 million people of Pennsylvania. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for the faith and trust that have been placed in me by the citizens of this community. Their confidence in me has provided the fulfillment of a lifetime.

"As I conclude my final term of office, I pledge to work diligently and responsibly for the area which I love.

"After nearly 45 years of public service, my decision not to seek re-election was not easy, but in my heart, I know full well that it is the right choice for me.

"Upon my retirement, I plan to remain active in the community, and I will continue my civic engagement to enhance the general welfare for all the wonderful people I have served."
