Republican State Representative from Augusta has announced he will resign from the Legislature for work reasons next month.
Rep. Justin Fecteau, R-Augusta, said o he will resign mid-way through his second term to accept a teaching position outside of his district. His last day will be July 4. It could lead to a closely divided seat in the chamber going up for grabs in a special election later this year.
In his second term, Fecteau passed a law curtailing the use of no-knock warrants, a practice that gained national attention after Kentucky police officers killed Louisville medical worker Breonna Taylor during a botched raid on her apartment. He also championed a law changing enrollment qualifications for minor parties.
