Law Alum Grey Mills Wins Seat in North Carolina House of Representatives

Regent Law alumnus Grey Mills (‘94) will represent the 95th House District of North Carolina in the 2009-2010 General Assembly.

In January of this year, Mills announced his decision to run against three-term incumbent Republican Karen Ray. After beating Ray, who outspent Mills’ campaign over 2 to 1 in the May primary, Mills went on to win in the November General Election with 82% of the vote.

Mills has pledged active and responsive leadership for North Carolina’s Iredell County. A large portion of his platform had to do with getting better representation at Raleigh for the members of Iredell.

“Whether you’re talking about young families, working people, or retirees, they all have one thing in common,” said Mills. “They all need a representative who listens to them, who takes an interest in what’s going on in the community and who is accessible to them on a consistent basis.”

Since graduating Regent, Mills has co-founded the law firm of Mills & Levine, P.A. and has served as the Iredell County Republican Party Chairman for four years. Previous to those accomplishments, he was an Assistant District Attorney and a Government, Economics, and U.S. History teacher.
