County commissioner sounds off on political shake-ups

Posted: Updated:

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT)- Woody White, Chairman of the New Hanover County Commissioners, has already announced he will run for congress.

Saturday, the commissioner sounded off on some recent local political shake-ups in the area.

This past week, Congressman Mike McIntyre and State Senator Thom Goolsby both announced that they will not be seeking re-election at the end of their terms.

"We're going to find someone strong to run in those seats and my guess is both of those gentlemen put in a lot of time and effort and felt like they needed to re-prioritize in their private lives," explained White.  "I certainly respect that."

"I think every election cycle we see some shake-ups and what I think we're focusing on right now is bringing a fresh new voice to Washington, D.C.," White elaborated.
