Deborah Maxwell, president of the New Hanover County NAACP, said she’d like to fulfill Rep. Susi Hamilton’s (D-District 18) unexpired term.
Hamilton will be leaving her seat in the state house to become Secretary of Natural and Cultural Resources.
Governor Roy Cooper named Hamilton to the position last week.
Maxwell, who is also district director of the NAACP for New Hanover, Bladen, Onslow, and Pender Counties said if chosen, it would be an opportunity to expand her service to the community.
