Rep. Millis resigns from NC House

PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Representative Chris Millis (R-16) plans to resign his seat in the NC House two weeks from today.

Millis announced his resignation Friday, stating that his sole reason for doing so is to spend more time with his family.  Millis is married with three children.

Millis is in his third term in office, serving Pender and Onslow Counties.

Millis' full statement is below.

Since 2013 it has been a tremendous honor to represent the citizens of the 16th District in the North Carolina State House of Representatives. After just completing the legislative "long session" of my third term in office, I am humbled that the people of our district entrusted me with their voice and their vote in Raleigh, with the positive changes that have been achieved. The transformational redirection of our state in terms of government spending, the individual tax burden, and oppressive regulation highlights how far we have come as a state that is now governed from a more conservative viewpoint.
