Chapel Hill, N.C. — Democrats in Orange and Durham counties voted Thursday to name an administrator with Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools to the District 50 seat in the state House.
Graig Meyer, the school district's director of student equity and volunteer services, will succeed Valerie Foushee, who last month was named to fill the Senate seat of retired Sen. Ellie Kinnaird, D-Orange.
The appointment isn't official until Gov. Pat McCrory formally names Meyer to the office.
Meyer was one of seven candidates seeking the seat. He will serve the rest of Foushee's House term, which expires at the end of 2014.
