In Maryland, Montgomery County Councilman Mike Knapp has announced he will not seek another term on the council.

Knapp has served two terms as the councilman representing the Upcounty region since first being elected in 2002. The Upcounty region includes Germantown and Clarksburg.

Knapp says he will return to working in the biotechnology field, where he worked as a consultant before being elected to council. He was one of two council members to vote against this year's budget, which included massive spending cuts and forced furloughs for many county employees.

Knapp says the cuts didn't go deep enough, and thinks council members will have to make the same kinds of difficult decisions next year.
