Rep. Dowling to remove name from ballot, retire in Nov.; cites ‘struggle’ with addiction | WJAC

State Rep. Matthew Dowling announced Friday that he will be removing his name from the November general election ballot and plans to retire at the end of his term, citing personal struggles with addiction as a contributing factor to his decision.

My recent auto accident and subsequent treatment that I voluntarily sought drove me to deeply reflect on my life and make some hard decisions. One of those was to leave my seat in the state House of Representatives so that I can better spend time focusing on family and my personal journey to wellness,” Dowling stated. “While it has been my greatest honor and privilege to represent the people of the 51st District, I believe it is time for someone else to continue this important work.
