Goodwin won't seek another term

State Rep. Melanie Wade Goodwin has announced she will not seek a fourth term in the House.

The Hamlet Democrat announced her decision in a statement published on a blog run by her husband, Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin.

Making my decision now allows others in Richmond and Montgomery counties who are interested in public service the time to weigh the very sizable commitment of personal and professional time, as well as resources, that it takes to be a member of the North Carolina General Assembly.

My decision also allows me to spend more time with my young children, and to focus on other personal goals and priorities in my life.

Re: Goodwin won't seek another term

She will be missed. She did a very good job, as did Wayne before her.
