Boseman leads group of politicians seeking new offices


We now know what Julia Boseman plans to do after she leaves the State Senate. The New Hanover County Democrat tells us she wants to run for district court judge.

There’s a new judge’s seat up for grabs in the New Hanover-Pender County judicial district, created because of our population growth. Wilmington attorney Chad Hogston is planning to run against Boseman. He’s a Republican, although judicial races are non-partisan.

In Pender County, F.D. Rivenbark has announced he will run for the 16th District seat in the State House. That’s the seat currently held by Republican Carolyn Justice. Rivenbark is currently a County Commissioner for the Burgaw district. He’s also a farmer and retired principal and teacher.

Dewey Hudson recently announced he will not seek another term as District Attorney. He’s running for State Senate instead hoping to represent Sampson, Duplin, and Lenoir Counties in Raleigh. Hudson will run as a Democrat seeking to fill Charlie Albertson’s seat. Albertson announced last week he is retiring after more than 20 years in the Senate.

The long time Clerk of Superior Courts for New Hanover County is retiring. Brenda Tucker has held the job for the past 20 years, but says she won’t seek a sixth term.
