State Sen. Bill Emmerson announced late Friday that he was resigning his seat effective Dec. 1.

In the abrupt announcement posted on his website, the Redlands Republican called his nine years in the Legislature “some of the most fulfilling years of my life.”

“It has been an honor to work alongside my colleagues in both the State Assembly and the State Senate – institutions that I hold in the highest regard,” Emmerson said. “But it’s time for me to move on.”

Emmerson, who turned 68 Oct. 28, did not immediately return a message on the reason for his departure.

But in the statement, he said he has always felt one must be passionate about their work.sd23_map.jpg
