McIntyre files to run for ninth term in Congress

Monday, February 27th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Rep. Mike McIntyre has filed to run for re-election in North Carolina’s 7th District seat in the US House.

“We live in the greatest nation in the world, and I am committed to sustaining the values that have made America great and increasing the opportunities that will help us blaze a path forward,” McIntyre said in a statement.

McIntyre, a Democrat, is running for the seat he’s held since winning election in 1996 despite no longer living in the district. State lawmakers redrew the lines for the 7th District to exclude McIntyre’s Lumberton home.

“My focus has been and always will be on what is best for the citizens and communities of eastern North Carolina,” McIntyre said. “That means working for and supporting policies and ideas that make a positive difference in people’s lives, and that’s the kind of representation that I want to continue to give. Working together, we can achieve great things.”

So far McIntyre is the only Democrat to file for the seat. There are three Republicans vying for the GOP nomination: Randy Crow, Ilario Pantano and David Rouzer.

Candidate filing ends Wednesday.

FIRST ON 3: Leland hires interim chief, upholds Jayne firing

Monday, February 27th, 2012

LELAND, NC (WWAY) — The Town of Leland has hired a new interim police chief. The town manager has also upheld the termination of former chief Tim Jayne, who had appealed.

Town Manager David Hollis today announced that Lloyd Michael James Jr. will take over as interim chief until a permanent replacement is found. With James joining the department, Karl Smith, who had been serving as interim chief, will return to his duties as deputy chief.

“I look forward to Mr. James working with the Town of Leland during this critical period of transition with the police department and as we continue with the search and selection process for a permanent chief of police,” Hollis said in a statement. “While I do not have a specific time frame before a permanent chief of police is hired, I expect the process to take several months. Mr. James’s leadership and service within the department will allow us to have adequate time to complete this process diligently and thoroughly.”
