OLYMPIA — State Rep. Pat Lantz says she’s retiring.

The Gig Harbor Democrat says she won’t seek a seventh term for the 26th legislative district because she wants to spend more time with her family.

Lantz was first elected in 1996, and has been chairwoman of the House Judiciary Committee for several years. She says she plans a long vacation before deciding what to do next.
