Dacey to Run for Congress in NC-3
Today, Craven County Commissioner Scott Dacey filed the necessary documents with the Federal Election Commission allowing him to begin accepting contributions in support of his campaign to capture the Republican nomination to serve in the United States House of Representatives from North Carolina’s Third District.
Dacey has served as a commissioner since 2010 when he was first elected to represent the citizens of Trent Woods, River Bend and approximately one-third of the City of New Bern. He was reelected in 2014 without opposition. Currently serving as the Vice-Chairman of the Board of Commissioners, Dacey served as Chairman in 2012-13 and sits on numerous boards and commissions representing the concerns of Craven County throughout eastern North Carolina.
“As a local leader, I see first hand where the federal government can do better for the people of eastern North Carolina. However, we need change in our representation in Washington to help President Trump in his efforts to strengthen America by making our country safer against terrorist threats from abroad,” said Dacey.
“I have been working to promote conservative policy initiatives throughout my tenure as a local elected official. Now is the time to push for bold reforms in Washington, DC, and President Trump needs a partner in this effort,” said Dacey. Adding, “I have the energy, and I am ready to fight to help promote the needs of our military and those who call eastern North Carolina their home.”
The campaign expects to spend the next three months working on fundraising efforts. A formal campaign kickoff will be held later this summer. In the meantime, interested parties are encouraged to visit Scott’s campaign website to learn more about why he is running for Congress and the status of his campaign.
