Posted by Doug Wahl - email

COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Chadbourn Mayor Ken Waddell says he will run for the State Legislature. He said he will challenge long time House Representative Dewey Hill.

Waddell has been the mayor of Chadbourn for four years.

He says he's running because he feels like Columbus county and rural parts of Brunswick county are being overlooked when it comes to new jobs.

Democrat Dewey hill has been in the house for eighteen years. Monday he said he does plan to seek re-election.
