Bedford, VA - Longtime Delegate Lacey Putney has announced he's retiring after more than half a century in office.

The 19th District independent from Bedford was first elected in 1961. He says at the time he had no intention of running for a second term.

Though Putney is an independent, he caucuses with the Republicans.

He is chairman of the powerful Appropriations Committee.

Putney turns 85 years old in June.
