I reluctantly sent this letter to the State and Wake County Board of Election today:
“I hereby resign my nomination as the Libertarian Party candidate for the North Carolina House of Representatives in District 36. I will be moving out of the distinct and therefore ineligible to serve.”
“I understand that since the ballots are already being printed my name will still appear. I have notified the Libertarian Party of Wake County of this resignation and their authority to nominate a replacement candidate under GS 163-114.”
My wife and I have been considering a move for some time, but I didn’t plan on doing this now. A recent accident she had made a move a higher priority. Basically, we’re getting too old to do steps. The current “sellers”s housing market made it an opportune time to put our townhouse on the market.
We’ll miss this part of Cary (and being so close to Trader Joe’s) but we’re not going far. We’re moving to Western Cary, nearer our grandchildren.
