From today's Metro section:

Fairfax County Supervisor T. Dana Kauffman (D-Lee) announced yesterday that he would not seek a fourth four-year term. Kauffman, 50, who also served as Metro board chairman in 2005, cited a mix of reasons for giving up his seat, including family obligations, satisfaction with having met important objectives and disappointment over lack of progress on other issues.

Mostly, he said, it was time to leave. "I'd rather leave with folks wondering why I'm going than leave with folks wondering why I'm here," he said.

Kauffman said he has no immediate career plans but is interested in remaining in the public sector or working for a nonprofit organization.
