County Commissioner To Replace Allred In NC House

A county commissioner will replace former state Rep. Cary Allred in the North Carolina House.

The Times-News of Burlington reported Alamance County Republican
leaders chose Dan Ingle as Allred's successor over two other
candidates Monday night. The nomination now goes to Gov. Beverly
Perdue, who is required by law to appoint Ingle to the House seat.

Allred resigned from the Legislature last week following a review of his conduct during a floor session in April. Allred was accused of drinking before speeding to work and embracing a teenage female page. Allred said he did nothing unethical.

Ingle is an Elon University police detective who received 17 of the 24 votes cast by the Alamance County's GOP executive committee.
Ingle was ultimately approved by acclamation.
