Justus won't return

Rep. Carolyn Justus announced she won't run for re-election, the Times-News in Henderson reports.

Justus, a Henderson County Republican, served as a legislative aide to her husband, the late Rep. Larry Justus, and was appointed to fill his seat after he died in 2002. She has been re-elected every two years since.

Justus plans to remain active in the community and said she will miss her colleagues and striving for good government, but:

"I will not miss telling my grandchildren, 'I can't attend your play because I have to be in Raleigh.'"
