Henderson County 117 Representative McGrady announces he will run for re-election

According to the Hendersonville Times-News, Now into his sophomore year as a state legislator, N.C. Rep. Chuck McGrady said he will continue to stand on his principles — even if it means ruffling feathers sometimes with fellow Republicans in Raleigh.

McGrady, who resigned as a Henderson County commissioner in December 2010 to fill the seat of former state Rep. Carolyn Justus when Justus retired, announced last week he intends to seek re-election.

Following what he called a “very productive” freshman year, McGrady said he looks forward to using his unique position as a fairly conservative Republican and staunch environmentalist to help the General Assembly reach compromises and get key legislation passed.
