COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The state's longest serving county commissioner is stepping down.
For 32-years, Lynwood Norris has been the county commissioner representing the Pireway, Tabor City area.
According to friends, the 77-year old decided not to run, so he could focus on his health.
Trent Burroughs, who's currently a Tabor City Town Councilman is the only person to file for Norris' seat.
However, there could still be a write-in candidate.
