Davis takes oath for NC House

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

By Ben Brown

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (PORTCITYDAILY.COM) — While the challenge of election remains for Ted Davis Jr. in his bid to represent NC House District 19, the early resignation of legislator and fellow Republican Danny McComas has allowed Davis to slide in for the short remainder of McComas’s term.

Davis, who resigned from the New Hanover County Board of Commissioners recently in light of the opening, took his oath of office Wednesday evening in the commission’s downtown Wilmington chambers. He told a crowd of supporters and peers that he thought the location appropriate, as a few feet behind him was the empty seat he had occupied as the county commission’s longtime chairman. He was first elected to the board in 1996.

"By receiving this appointment, if I am elected," Davis said Wednesday of the House post, "I will already have seniority" by the time other, new legislators are sworn-in this coming January. Davis explained that could give him muscle in his plan to fight for his district from Raleigh.
