CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Family and professional commitments are keeping Timothy Bittle out of the running for the state House seat against current Rep. Jeffrey Coy, D-Franklin, in next year's election.
"I have come to the conclusion that there will be other opportunities to run for public office, but there is only one opportunity to be a father to a 6-year-old, a 2-year-old and a newborn," Bittle said in a prepared statement.
Bittle and his wife, Mary Jane, had their third child on Nov. 13.
There are also other professional opportunities on the horizon in which Bittle, executive director of the state House Labor Relations Committee, said he could use his experience in state government.
