Raleigh, N.C. – North Carolina House Rep. Susan Martin (R-Wilson), a legislative leader on tax and economic issues, announced Monday she would not seek reelection to a fourth term in the General Assembly in 2018.

Rep. Martin co-chairs the state House Committee on Commerce and Job Development, as well as the state House Committee on Finance.

I decided to run for office to make a difference for families,” Martin said in a statement. “I have loved serving the citizens of Wilson and Pitt counties and look forward to continuing to affect change.”

State House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) released a statement thanking Rep. Martin for her dedication and effectiveness as a legislator:

“Rep. Susan Martin is an exceptional member of the state House who is uniquely committed to serving her constituents in eastern North Carolina,” said Moore.

“Her steadfast voice on behalf of families in Wilson and Pitt counties will be missed by her colleagues in the General Assembly and all North Carolinians who deserve the hard work and strong character she embodies as a legislative leader.”
