Rep. John Fraley recently announced he will seek re-election to Iredell County’s District 95 in the North Carolina House.
“It has been a privilege and a serious responsibility to serve the people of Iredell County and North Carolina for the last three years," Fraley said in a press release. "I have strived every day to work to improve the lives of our citizens, to address their concerns and to work diligently on the education, transportation, economic development and healthcare challenges we face. I look forward to an aggressive campaign to ask the voters of Iredell County to give me the opportunity to continue this work as their Representative in Raleigh."
In conjunction with Fraley’s announcement, Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell, Iredell County Board of Commissioners Chairman James Mallory and Mayors Miles Atkins of Mooresville, Teross Young of Troutman and Costi Kutteh of Statesville announced their support for Fraley’s re-election.
