Wake Commissioner Harold Webb resigning; Dems to pick replacement next week

Posted by on Thu, Sep 9, 2010 at 8:42 AM

Democratic Party sources forwarded Commissioner Harold Webb's letter of resignation, sent yesterday to the Wake County Clerk. Webb suffered a stroke last October. Although his health has improved, he wrote, his constituents need someone representing them full-time.

Webb's term doesn't expire for two more years. His replacement will be chosen by a committee of the Wake County Democratic Party, which was already scheduled to meet next week — on Tuesday, Sept. 14 — to select a successor for ex-Chair Jack Nichols. Nichols resigned after becoming a candidate for Wake Commissioner in the 2010 elections in November. He's taking on Republican incumbent Paul Coble.
