Kerr Won't Run For Re-Election

A co-chairman of the Senate Finance Committee won't run for re-election next year.

Wayne County Democratic Senator John Kerr said Thursday he'll
step down after his eighth term in the Senate. Kerr also served
three terms in the House, starting in 1987. His district covers
Greene County and portions of Wayne and Pitt counties.

In an interview, Kerr said the time is right to leave the
General Assembly. He is 71 and still works at his Goldsboro law
firm.

Kerr says he's most proud of his work to improve aging water and
sewer lines and infrastructure, particularly in rural areas. He
sponsored a 1998 statewide bond referendum that provided $800
million for such upgrades.
