Grier Martin is a Democratic member of the North Carolina House of Representatives, representing District 34. He was first appointed to the chamber on June 1, 2013, replacing the outgoing Deborah K. Ross (D).

Following an announcement in early May 2013 by Ross that she would resign, Martin expressed an interest in being appointed to her seat. Martin declined to challenge Ross in the 2012 election after being redrawn into the same district following the 2010 census. Without opposition, Martin was nominated by Wake County Democrats on May 28, 2013, and Governor Pat McCrory (R) appointed him, as dictated by state law, to serve the remainder of Ross' term on June 1, 2013. Martin was sworn in on the night of June 3, 2013.[1][2][3]

Martin represented District 34 from 2005 to 2013.
