Pitts bowing out

State Rep. Jim Pitts, R-Waxahachie, five-time chairman of the powerful House Appropriations Committee, will not seek re-election in March’s planned Republican primary for the District 10 seat.
The move leaves the field for the position open, with candidates T.J. Fabby and Q.D. “Duke” Burge planning to run as of this morning. Fabby unsuccessfully challenged Pitts in the last election for the State Representative District 10 seat, and Burge has most recently served on the Midlothian ISD board of trustees.
