Goolsby takes Senate oath


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Thom Goolsby officially became New Hanover County's senator today.

Goolsby took his oath of office at the New Hanover County Courthouse, a place he's spent a lot of time as an attorney. Later this month he'll head to Raleigh, where he'll be part of the Republican majority in the Senate.

Goolsby replaces Democrat Julia Boseman, who decided last year not to seek reelection.

Goolsby Swearing In

It was great to see both Judge Hockenberry and Senator Goolsby acknowledge that they were elected to serve the people of North Carolina by the grace of God at the swearing in ceremony for Senator Goolsby, and to hear Scripture and benedictions from 2 pastors and a rabbi.
