State Representative Jamie Boles, of Whispering Pines, (R-Moore) announced Wednesday that he will be seeking re-election to the North Carolina House of Representatives for District 52, Moore County. Boles was first elected in 2008 and currently serves as Majority Deputy Whip and chairs several committees, including the Justice and Public Safety Committee.
Boles is a North Carolina native who grew up in Aberdeen, attended Moore County public schools, and graduated from Sandhills Community College with an Associates Degree in Business Administration. Jamie is a small business owner in Moore County. He has owned and operated Boles Funeral Homes and Crematory since 1984, with locations in Southern Pines, Pinehurst, and Seven Lakes.
Jamie is the father of four children whom all graduated from Moore County public schools as well as two grandchildren who currently attend Moore County public schools. He is an EMT/Firefighter serving Moore County since 1976, currently with Whispering Pines Fire and Rescue. He is a member of Bethesda Presbyterian Church in Aberdeen.
“It has been a privilege and an honor to serve the people of Moore County in the North Carolina House since 2008,” said Boles. “When I was elected, the State was almost three billion dollars in debt. Today, North Carolina has a booming economy and a surplus in its rainy-day fund. North Carolina also has a balanced budget, reduced taxes, and reduced regulations on businesses. During my tenure in the North Carolina House, I was able to secure funding to repurpose the closed Samarcand Youth Detention Center into a state-of-the-art Law Enforcement Training Center which has brought jobs to Moore County.
I am proud to have a proven conservative record and to be a strong supporter of pro-life, second amendment rights, and voter integrity. I still have important work to accomplish on various issues facing our State, and I ask for your continued support and prayers in this upcoming election.”
