RALEIGH, North Carolina: Jerry Dockham (R) announced that he is likely to resign from the North Carolina House of Representatives before his term is up in 2014.[1]

Dockham was nominated for the North Carolina Utilities Commission by Governor Pat McCrory (R). If his appointment is confirmed, he will begin his term on July 1, at which point in time he would resign from the state house.

Dockham has served in the state house for 23 years.[1] If he were to resign, his successor would be appointed by the Davidson County Republican Party.[1]

In 2012, Dockham easily won re-election to the state house.
