Former 4-term legislator Grier Martin will run for the House District 34 seat being vacated by Rep. Deborah Ross. Ross will resign to take a position as General Counsel with the Triangle Transit Authority.
“It was my privilege to represent the people of District 34 for 8 years. After being double bunked with my friend Rep. Ross in abusive redistricting, I made the decision to step aside. I had no doubt District 34 would be well served by Rep. Ross, and it has been. She will be an outstanding addition to the Triangle Transit Authority,” Martin said.
“Today I am announcing I will seek to serve the people of the 34th District again, and I’m honored to have the support of Rep. Ross. I look forward to speaking with members of the Wake County Democratic Party Executive Committee, and all interested constituents about how we can continue to make our community the best place to live and work in America,” Martin concluded.
