Rep. Sontany Won’t Seek Reelection

Democrat Janis Sontany, a five-term state representative from Nashville and a former member of the Metro Council, said Wednesday that she is leaving the state legislature after this year, according to Chas Sisk.
Sontany, 65, said she wants to spend more time with her family.
“I never wanted this to be a career,” she said. “It’s just time for me to move on and do something else with my life.”
Sontany, a Democrat, has been in state and local politics for a total of 17 years. She also worked in the government affairs office for DuPont.
