Mick Rankin for NC House
As a candidate for NC House to represent District 24 I am humbled by the support and interest I have seen and felt. Over the last 3 years you have welcomed me into your town, city, and county meetings, events, community gatherings, and even your homes as I walked neighborhoods. Attending these events and visiting neighborhoods was my way of showing you that I am here to listen and learn and be the kind of representative that you could trust to hear and act on your concerns.
The reality of public service is it requires sacrifice away from family and personal interest. I knew that going into this candidacy because I lived it for almost 42 years in the Navy. Over the last week I have received some health news that will require more testing and potential treatment. You, the voters, deserve a candidate who is working 100% of the time for you. I am not able to do that right now. As of today, I am suspending my campaign to concentrate on my family and my health. I intend to continue to be voice in the community and speak out on issues. I will just do that from the sideline.
I want to leave you with this final thought. Research the candidates then get out and vote at every opportunity, make your voice heard!
Everyone’s vote counts when everyone votes!
