State Representative Chente Quintanilla (D-El Paso) will not be returning to the legislature next session.
The long-time state rep will be taking on fellow Democrat Willie Gandara, Jr. for his seat on the El Paso County Commissioner's Court.
Quintanilla's district overlaps the county commissioner precinct that is currently held by Gandara.
Quintanilla is a retired school administrator and will be eligible for a pension as a state legislator.
With Quintanilla leaving the legislature, it will leave District 75 with an open seat and redistricting lines make the district more rural and more Republican than the previous lines.
