Catlin to run for county commissioner

Posted by Doug Wahl - email

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT)- After considering a run for the State Senate, Republican Rick Catlin has thrown his hat into the ring for New Hanover County commissioner.

Catlin is a familiar name in area politics. In 2004 he lost a race against State Rep. Carolyn Justice, R-Pender.  Two years later flirted with, but later abandoned a run to challenge State Sen. Julia Boseman.

In a press release Catlin said he was considering a run for the state Senate, but decided New Hanover County faced unique challenges and serving his local community would be his first priority.
