After 20 years, Rep. Anna Crock, retires

CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - Republican Rep. Anna Crook is retiring after 20 years of serving in New Mexico's House of Representatives.

Crook announced Saturday that she would not run for re-election.

She plans to serve on her legislative committees until Dec. 31.

Crook represents District 64, which includes Clovis and Curry County.

Crook says it's been a wonderful experience but it's time to let someone else do it.

She counts pushing a 2011 bill that allowed farmers to sell irrigation water among her accomplishments.

Clovis City Commissioner Randy Crowder and Wade Lopez, a previous candidate, say they plan to seek the Republican nomination for her seat in the June 3 primary election.
