State Senator John Yudichak currently serves the 14th district which includes Carbon County and part of Luzerne County.
He has served three terms in the state senate and six terms in the house of representatives.
Yudichak, an independent, says he is not running again so he can spend more time with his family, but this also comes after redistricting moved his district to another part of the state.
