Tennessee House Rep. Jim Coley, R-Bartlett, announced today he would not seek re-election next year. He recently was diagnosed with the early stages of dementia, the Daily Memphian reports. Coley has served in the House for 13 years, during which he championed tougher human trafficking laws. “It has been an incredible honor to serve the men, women and families of our community during my time in the House chamber, and I am proud of the progress we have made protecting our children from exploitation and abuse,” Coley said in a statement.
