Clampitt announces candidacy
Swain County Republican Mike Clampitt has announced his bid for NC House of Representatives Seat 119.
Clampitt ran against Joe Sam Queen in 2012. He retired in 2004 after serving 28 years as fire captain with the Charlotte Fire Department, and returned to Bryson City.
“I believe that the upcoming mid-term election will probably be one of the most important elections we will be facing,” Clampitt said. “Having spent all of my adult life in public service, I would like to continue my role in the public arena by continuing to serve the citizens of Western North Carolina.”
NC House District 119 includes Swain, Jackson and 11 precincts of western Haywood County.
