Representative Gary Ackerman, a longtime member of Congress from Queens and Long Island, announced on Thursday that he would not seek re-election, in an unexpected development that brings an end to a colorful political career.

In a statement, Mr. Ackerman said: "The residents of Queens and Long Island have honored me with their trust and support for the past 34 years, first as a New York state senator, and for the past 15 terms as a member of Congress. I've been truly privileged to have had the opportunity to fight for the beliefs of my neighbors in both the state capital and in the halls of Congress."

His term will end Jan. 2, 2013.
