David Crum, Republican legislator from Augusta, said Monday he is stepping down from his District 77 House seat at the end of the term. He is endorsing Augusta Mayor Kristey Williams to replace him.

Crum has served in the House for eight years.

“It’s been very rewarding, and I’ve enjoyed it a lot,” Crum said in an interview, “but I think it’s time to step aside and let Mayor Williams, who I think will have a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of ideas, step forward.”

Crum said he plans to continue his work as chairman of the committee that oversees KanCare, the state’s privatized Medicaid program, until the end of his term. He has no immediate plans for retirement, he said.
