ST. PAUL -- Mark Murdock, R-Ottertail, is among the more than two dozen legislators retiring this year.

Looking around the ornate House chamber recently, Murdock said he will most remember his two terms in the House because of "how this place is and what it stands for. This is our democracy, our freedom."


The 60-year-old Murdock wants to spend more time with family and said that was a driving force in his decision to retire.
