State Sen. Robbins to retire in 2014

HARRISBURG — After 32 years in the state Legislature, Sen. Bob Robbins, R-50th, will retire.
Robbins, 69, of Salem Township, Mercer County, has announced he will not seek another term.
In Butler County, the district covers Lancaster and Worth townships. It also covers all of Crawford and Mercer counties and parts of eastern Lawrence County.
First elected to the House of Representatives in 1982, Robbins represented the 17th House District for eight years until his election to the 50th Senatorial District in 1990 following the retirement of Sen. Roy Wilt.
“It has truly been an honor and pleasure to represent the great people of our area as a member of the House and Senate. While the decision to retire has been a difficult one, I now look forward to spending more time with my family and friends as I move into the next phase of my life,” Robbins said in a statement.
