NC Representative Bill Cook Sworn In

The North Carolina House of Representatives has a new Republican in the Sixth District seat.

Many hand shakes were in order after Republican Bill Cook was sworn in to the House of Representatives at the Washington District courtroom on Wednesday night.

Familiar faces like Republican District Five Senator Louis Pate, along with Cooks campaign staff, attended his big night.

A reception followed at the Meeting Place restaurant in Washington where many supporters got a chance to speak with their new representative.

Cook says he will focus on lowering taxes and helping jobs and small business flourish.

Cook defeated incumbent Democrat Representative Arthur Williams in November.

    Ok Bill, you ran on more jobs if you voted for the elephant , Ah.... I'm waiting for your great secret plan for all those jobs. How much does the golf course caddy pay? I might want to apply.

    Bill COOK will do a great job. My family and I have gotten to know the Cook's and we voted for him. He will do us proud. As for Cook commenting on the hospital - no need to. It is up to the County to find the best deal for the county, we should care less about where the management team is from! It has no business on Bill Cook's table!

    I am a bit surprised not to have openly heard from Mr Cook as the prospect of leasing the hospital to an out of state company was on the table. Sometimes local matters effect the state. Something to consider in the future.
