Two months after announcing she planned to soon leave the Washington Senate, Ann Rivers now says she’s going to stick around.

The La Center Republican wrote on Facebook on Tuesday that she’s reversed course because she realizes she will have more time to juggle her new job at the city of Longview with her political duties.

“I recognize it’s rare for someone to ‘unannounce’ a retirement before retiring, but I also didn’t know when I went to work for the city that continuing to finish my legislative term was even a possibility,” Rivers wrote.
