CU System
N.C. CU employee runs for State House
GOLDSBORO, N.C. (2/13/12)--John Bell, manager of sales and business development at North Carolina Community FCU, Goldsboro, N.C., announced his candidacy for the North Carolina House of Representatives last week.

Bell will compete in the 10th District Republican primary in May (North Carolina Credit Union League Weekly Update Feb. 10).

Bell cited his experience at the credit union as a key qualification for the District 10 seat. "I see people struggling, looking for jobs, trying to grow their businesses every day," Bell told News Now. "My experience with credit unions, with the Boy Scouts and my background in agriculture, that all helped feed my desire to want to stand up and do make a difference."

"He's an outstanding individual," said North Carolina FCU President/CEO Mark Lesnau. "He has the fire to do whatever he sets his sights on doing, and he will do well for the counties he represents, as well as for North Carolina."

Bell cited three major goals in his campaign: bringing jobs to eastern North Carolina by investing in infrastructure, reducing wasteful spending in education while investing in the community college system, and working across party lines to strengthen eastern North Carolina's voice in Raleigh.

Bell's political career began in 2008 when he managed the campaign of Efton Sager, who at one time served as a volunteer at North Carolina FCU. Sager won his election to the North Carolina House representing the 11th District. Although Bell has been active in Republican Party politics in the years since, this is his first run for elected office.
