Chaz Beasley’s Statement on Rep. Jeter’s Resignation

Incumbent Rep. Charles Jeter (R-District 92) has resigned from the General Assembly and will not run for reelection, several news outlets reported Monday morning.  

“My interactions with Rep. Jeter have been positive, and he has maintained a level of respect for which I am grateful,” Beasley stated in an email to supporters. “Although Rep. Jeter and I do not agree on every issue, I appreciate and respect the fact that he has devoted four years of his life to District 92.”

Beasley says the campaign is focused on the road ahead, despite not facing his expected opponent.  

“This race was never about who we’re running against - it’s about what we’re running for. We’re still running to ensure that everyone can participate in our economic success. We’re still running to guarantee every child has a quality public school education - and that we properly equip our teachers to accomplish that mission. And, we’re still running to ensure that everyone, regardless of background, can be embraced by our community.”

Chaz Beasley is the Democratic candidate for NC House District 92, located in Mecklenburg County. It includes parts of Huntersville, Charlotte, Pineville and Steele Creek, as well as Charlotte-Douglas International Airport.

Born and raised in the foothills of North Carolina, Beasley grew up in a low-income, single parent home. He attended North Carolina’s public schools and graduated with honors from Harvard. Beasley then went on to earn his law degree at Georgetown.  

Currently, Beasley works as an attorney in the finance industry. He lives in Steele Creek with his fiancée Whitney, and his future stepdaughter, Maddison.
