WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- This will be Jason Thompson's last term in elected office. At least for now.
This morning on The Morning Beat with Chad Adams on The Big Talker FM, Thompson said he will not run for office when his current term as a New Hanover County Commissioner expires in 2012. Thompson said the decision applies to all elected office. When Adams asked Thompson if he plans to run for Congress, Thompson said, "No."
Thompson said after serving in elected office for 12 years, he wants to spend more time with his family. He said he may run for office again in the future, but not until his son, who is six, is at least 15 or 16 years old.
