WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Holly Grange is officially a member of the North Carolina General Assembly. Governor Pat McCrory approved a recommendation by the New Hanover County Executive Committee for House District 20 to have Grange fill the remainder of Rep. Rick Catlin’s term serving the district that represents the northern part of New Hanover County.

Grange had won the District 20 Republican Primary Election in March, and is running unopposed in the November General Election. She was officially sworn-in Tuesday by Rep. Tim Moore, the Speaker of the House, in order to attend a caucus meeting. Grange said her replacing Catlin for the remainder of the current term was planned when Catlin resigned.

“He wanted to give me an opportunity to get my feet wet, and get the lay of the land,” Grange said. “It also gives me the chance to get some seniority on the other new members coming in next year, and be able to hit the ground running.”

Grange said she has spoken with Speaker Moore regarding committees she would like to serve on once the next session of the General Assembly convenes in 2017. Transportation and infrastructure are two areas Grange would like to concentrate on during her time in Raleigh.

Grange has scheduled a public swearing-in for 11:30am on Friday, Sept. 2, at the New Hanover County Government Center.
