Albany --State Senate Minority Leader Michael Meyer Von Bremen will not run for re-election and will instead seek a judgeship on the Georgia Court of Appeals.

 The 50-year old Albany Democrat served District 12 in the State Senate for ten years. He says leaving after five terms is one of the hardest decisions he has made in his political career.

Meyer Von Bremen said "A door has opened, and that happens in life. I feel confident that there will be qualified people who will seek this position and carry on a very, very strong tradition."

 Meyer Von Bremen will run for the seat on the Georgia Court of Appeals being vacated by Jack Ruffin of Augusta.

It is a non-partisan election voted on statewide every six years.
