Representative may resign office early
By Geoff Pallay
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.
In 2012, Dockham easily won re-election to the state house.
