ORANGE COUNTY – Your new state representative will be selected Thursday, October 24.

The four-person committee that will nominate the new legislator met Monday night.

Five Orange County residents announced their intention to fill the North Carolina District 50 House of Representatives seat formerly held by Valerie Foushee. We spoke with Graig Meyer, Laurin Easthom, Drew Nelson, and Bernadette Pelissier; Tommy McNeill never returned WCHL’s calls.
