KILLEA TO LEAVE SENATE, RULES OUT RUN FOR ASSEMBLY.

Byline: Associated Press

Lucy Killea, one of the state Senate's two independents, said Monday that she'll leave the Legislature at the end of her current term instead of running for the Assembly in November.

``I have thought long and hard and concluded that the Assembly was not the place where I could best continue my interest in public service,'' the San Diego area lawmaker said in a statement.

``There are many other opportunities outside of elected office,'' she added. ``I can't say at this time what I will be doing next year, except that I expect to be actively involved in public policy in California.''

Killea, who is barred by term limits from running again for the Senate, had considered running this year in a state Assembly district that includes part of her Senate district.

Killea, 73, has a colorful background. Her career has included stints as an Army intelligence officer, an aide to Eleanor Roosevelt, a CIA and U.S. Information Agency employee, a university lecturer and a San Diego city councilwoman.
