OAK ISLAND, NC (WECT) -

Don’t look for Betty Wallace’s name on the list of candidates running for mayor in Oak Island in 2015. The three-term incumbent has decided not to run for re-election.

Wallace says she started attending Oak Island Town Council meetings in 2003, helping to set up and videotape the meetings for re-broadcast on the town’s information channel. Wallace was then elected mayor in 2009, then won re-election in 2011 and 2013.

“So when you look at it, by the time my current term ends I will have attended every town council meeting and special meeting for more than 12 years,” Wallace said. “That’s enough. I’m telling everyone that my husband and I are looking forward to not having to be here on the second Tuesday of every month.”

Wallace says she does plan to stay involved in town business, and will still serve on committees and boards. Her current term ends in December.

Brenden Jones (R-Columbus) says he did not get the answers to his questions. “To be honest with you, we saw a lot of pretty charts and a lot of pretty graphs, but we still have no answers,” Rep Jones said about the meeting of the House Select Committee on Disaster Relief.
