*Athey says he won't stand for re-election to House seat


By Ben Orcutt -- borcutt@nvdaily.com

FRONT ROYAL -- Del. Clifford L. "Clay" Athey Jr. announced today that he will not seek re-election this fall.

"Following discussions with my family and my colleagues in the General Assembly over the last several months, I have decided not to seek the nomination of my party for a sixth term representing the citizens of Warren, Frederick, and Fauquier County in the Virginia House of Delegates," Athey, R-Front Royal, says in press release.

"In the forefront of this family decision is the fact that our children, Madagan and Clayton, who will turn five years old next week, will be attending kindergarten at A.S. Rhodes Elementary School beginning in September," Athey says. "Since another term in Richmond would require me to be away from my children more than I am willing to endure, Stacey and I decided that standing for re-election at this time would not be in our family's best interest."
