HELENA (AP) — State Sen. John Brueggeman has resigned his seat in the legislature, saying he needs to spend more time on his career after nearly decade in public service.
The Republican submitted his letter of resignation to Secretary of State Linda McCulloch Monday.
Brueggeman's Senate District 6 includes portions of Flathead and Lake counties.
The Republican central committees in both counties have 45 days to appoint three possible successors. The county commissioners in both counties will meet together to choose the appointee, who will serve the remaining two years of Brueggeman's term.
