WILMINGTON — Clinton County Commissioner Patrick Haley announced Tuesday that he has decided not to seek a third term as commissioner “after much thought, prayer, and discussion with my family.”
“With the completion of my term, which ends on December 31, 2018, I will have been in public service for almost fifty years,” he said in a statement. “I am blessed that I have no apparent health issues prompting my retirement, but desire to spend more time with my family.
“I plan to serve out my term, and then pursue other things that interest me,” he added.
“I am grateful for the trust that voters have placed in me, both as a county commissioner, and prior to that, as county sheriff. I have enjoyed serving with my many colleagues over the years, and am deeply proud of the work I have accomplished in both positions,” Haley said.
