Arinder, who served two terms from Scott County, had qualified for re-election but changed his mind this week.

Arinder told the Scott County Times that he planned to return to his farm and spend
more time with his family.

The 59-year-old Arinder also said he had had some health problems and was not 100 percent committed to seek the office

Arinder first sought political office 12 years ago when he ran for the state Senate and lost. Later, after the death of former Rep. Dick Livingston and Livingston's son decided not to continue serving, Arinder ran for the open seat and won.
