Trudi Walend Won't Seek Re-election to NC-113

Rep. Trudi Walend, R-Brevard, announced today she will not run for re-election to the state House, ending her House service after five terms.

“When I first ran for public office in 1996 I had no grandchildren. Now I’m blessed with five,” she said in a news release. “It’s time for me to retire and have more time to enjoy these beautiful children as they grow so quickly in their distant homes. I will serve out the current term, retiring December 31, 2008.”

The 113th House district is made up of Transylvania County, Polk County and southern Henderson County.

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
