Howard files for 15th term in NC House

Julia Howard has seen plenty of changes in Raleigh.

The Mocksville Republican is seeking her 15th term in the N.C. House. The new district includes all of Davie County and about half of Rowan County. She now represents all of Davie and portions of western Forsyth.

She’s been in the minority party, and now, the majority party.

Howard is most proud of her work as chair of the ethics committee, when the chamber dealt with a legislator who had made inappropriate advances toward a page.

She mentions welfare reform, and paying off a $3 billion unemployment debt. Businesses are again thriving in the state, she said.

“We keep growing,” she said. “I appreciate the vote of confidence over the years and I feel like I can continue to contribute.”

Even after nearly 30 years in the legislature, Howard said: “I’m still the same person.”
