ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Delegate Sam Arora says he won't seek a second term next year.
The 32-year-old Montgomery County Democrat told supporters in a blog post on Friday that he plans to return to work in the private sector full time when his term ends.
Arora may be best known for a reversal on same-sex marriage legislation. He co-sponsored the bill in 2011, but ended up opposing the legislation. But Arora tells The Washington Post (http://wapo.st/16tEurG) that electability did not factor heavily into his decision. He says it was based on whether he could govern well and be a good leader, husband and father at the same time.
Arora is vice president for business development at the Arora Group, which provides health care services to military veterans and active-duty personnel and their families.
