NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - New Hanover County Board of Elections Chairman John Ferrante says he does not want to be considered for reappointment when his term ends in July.

Ferrante has been on the Board of Elections the last couple years, most recently serving as chairman of the three person board. He says he informed the state board of his intentions in March.

Earlier this year, the State Board of Elections dismissed four complaints against Ferrante. One state board member commented that someone should speak to Ferrante "very candidly" about the way he treats people. At the time, Ferrante described the issues as "stylistic differences."

Ferrante said it's important that others get the chance to serve. He said two years was a good amount of time on the board.
