Senator Rick Horner Announces Bid For Re-Election

On Monday, Senator Rick Horner formally announced his plan to seek re-election to the North Carolina Senate representing District 11 in the 2018 election. The new District 11 will cover northwestern Johnston County and all of Nash County.

“This is an exciting time to serve our people in Raleigh because what we’ve been doing with taxes and regulation is working for our state,” Senator Horner said. “We’re at the top of every national list whether you’re looking for quality of life or of business friendly states. There’s no question about it, North Carolina is the place to be.”

“During the 2017 Legislative Session, we provided record funding for our public schools and universities; began our attack on the opioid addiction crisis by passing the STOP Act; continued additional tax relief for all our families and small businesses allowing them to keep millions more of their hard earned money; we’ve expanded the rainy day fund, your state’s savings account, to the highest level in state history, all while balancing the state’s budget,” said Horner. “There’s still more work to be done and I want to continue to do my part.”

“It is a privilege to serve those in Senate District 11, and I look forward to representing our community next session as we continue to improve the quality of life for everyone across North Carolina.”

Horner, who lives in Bailey, was first elected to the North Carolina Senate in 2016.

He serves on the following Senate standing committees:

  • Education/Higher Education
  • Healthcare
  • Judiciary
  • Pensions and Retirement and Aging
  • State and Local Government

He also serves on the following Joint Legislative Committees:

  • Education Oversight
  • Oversight Committee on General Government
  • Committee on Local Government.

Among the towns that are in the new NC Senate District 11 include: Archer Lodge, Bailey, Castalia, Clayton, Dortches, Kenly, Middlesex, Momeyer, Nashville, Red Oak, Rocky Mount, Sharpsburg, Spring Hope, Whitakers, Wilson’s Mills and Zebulon.
