RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Veteran Demcratic House legislator Rick Glazier announced this week that he will vacate his Cumberland County seat to take a job as the head of the liberal advocacy group the N.C. Justice Center.

Glazier made his announcement on the House floor in a speech where he said he had enjoyed working with his colleagues and described the atmosphere in the legislature as increasingly partisan.

He will stay in his seat until the end of the long session. Democrats will recommend a replacement, giving that person a leg up on a possible run for the seat in 2016.
