After serving seven consecutive terms, amounting to 14 years in office, Representative Phil Haire, (D-119) will not be running for an eighth term in the General Assembly.

Western North Carolina was buzzing with the news last week after Haire issued a press release announcing his decision to not seek re-election.

“As visions of sugar plums dance in our heads”, we recall the wonderful memories of family, friends, and fellowship during the Christmas season. As we look forward to the coming New Year, I will not be filing for re-election to the 119th District of the North Carolina House of Representatives,” said Haire. “It has been my highest honor and privilege to have been elected by you to serve as your representative for seven consecutive terms. So, to the finest people, in the finest part of North Carolina and in the best State in the United States, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and wish God’s blessing on each and every one,” he concluded.
