Businessman Makes First Bid For Office

A businessman in Beaufort County is making his first run at public office.

Beaufort County businessman Wayne Langston announced Monday he will run for the Republican nomination for the North Carolina State House three seat which represents part of Beaufort, Pamlico, and much of Craven County.

The seat Langston is looking to take is currently held by Norm Sanderson who is expected to run for the Senate District two seat.

Langston, a real estate management director, is running as a fiscal conservative. He says the state budget crisis is a main priority and he's vowed to vote the issues and not the straight party line.

    This man and his ex wife ex-wife filed bankruptcy and have several homes that are in the foreclosure listings in the paper a few months back. It is said that the ex wife has been collecting the rent from their tenants since their separation personally her self and no repairs or maintenance has been kept up by neither party on any of the properties that they own. This is not what we need representing our county when it is so obvious that they can not manage their own responsibilities.

    This man owns property he rents to people that is in sub-standard condition...he charges ridiculous amounts of rent and the dwellings are in poor shape...no hot water...no electricity...and he doesn't respond to requests to have items fixed. He and his ex wife are certainly NOT "pillars of the community" and he is definitely not in a position to represent anyone!

      You are so right. He tried to sell me a house he didn't even own. Never fixed anything and when the COURT said he had to pay me my security deposit back took 2 months for the LAW to get it from him. We dont need him representing us!!!

    If I am not mistaken he and his ex-wife filed bankruptcy and have several homes that were in the forclosure listings in the paper some time ago. Does that make you want him dealing with anything about budgeting!!!

          He might be cleaning her clock...She is an ex for a reason and that should not be held against him.
