Voinovich to retire in 2010

Sen. George Voinovich (R-Ohio), who has worked on federal employee issues, announced today that he would retire from the Senate when his current term expires in 2010.

“In my lifetime of public service, I have never seen the country in such perilous circumstances. These next two years in office, for me, will be the most important years that I have served in my entire political career,” he said in a statement.

Voinovich has been a member of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and is ranking member of the committee’s Oversight of Government Management, the Federal Workforce, and the District of Columbia Subcommittee. He has promoted linking pay to performance results in past proposed legislation.

During his final two years, Voinovich said he would focus on an economic stimulus package, jump-starting the credit markets, and continuing to improve the personnel and management of the federal government.
