MGRC Legislative Retirement Event

MGRC recently hosted an event to recognize and acknowledge the public service of all the legislators retiring this year. The event was well attended by both MGRC members and Legislators. As you are all aware, both the Senate and the House have many members retiring and here are a few facts about those retiring legislators (courtesy of Gary Carlson). 

  • 41 legislators will not be returning next year
  • 20 House Members and 21 Senators
  • Combined, they have 547 years of service
  • They average over 13 years of service
  • 4 will have served over 10,000 days

MGRC was happy to give our members a chance to honor those retiring legislators and are aware of the effort it takes to serve. Thank you to all members that attended the event this week.
