Rep. Scott Inman has withdrawn his planned resignation, opting to return to the Oklahoma House of Representatives during the upcoming legislative session.
"After much consideration and consultation with my family, I have decided to honor the trust and faith shown to me by the citizens of Del City and south Oklahoma City when they elected me to serve as their representative for the sixth time in November of 2016. Today, I am announcing my intent to return to the Oklahoma House next session to complete the important work facing our great state. As the Legislature continues to work toward a bipartisan budget solution to address the myriad fiscal challenges facing our kids, seniors and veterans, I want to ensure my constituents have the voice and the representation they rightfully deserve."
Inman initially announced his resignation and dropped out of the gubernatorial race in October.
The former House Minority leader has served Del City in the state legislature since 2006.
