Latvala kicking politics. Probably. At least 2009.
Former state Sen. Jack Latvala says he plans to retire after 36 years in politics. After some health problems and years of political stress, the 56-year-old Pinellas-based consultant tells Bay Buzz he wants to spend next summer in Maine and more time at his Steinhatchee home.
Latvala said he has taken no clients for future races. But he intends to keep his printing company. And evoking his inner Brett Favre, he didn't totally rule out a return.
"You may see me back. But it won't be during 2009," Latvala said.
