NASHVILLE (AP) - The chief lobbyist for the state's largest teachers union is leaving the position this month.

Jerry Winters has represented the Tennessee Education Association at the state Capitol for over 30 years. His last day is December 14.

Winters said he will continue to have a presence at the Legislature as an independent consultant and lobbyist.

He said he believes his years of experience at the Capitol give him some unique insights that may be helpful to others as they navigate the legislative process.
