RALEIGH — A former state senator from Davie County is making a run for a new office.
Andrew Brock, a Republican, served in the N.C. Senate from 2003 through 2017. He represented Davie and Rowan counties in the state legislature before he resigned upon receiving an appointment to the Division of Employment Security’s state Board of Review. Now, Brock is looking to stay closer to home and is running for Davie County clerk of Superior Court.
He served a four-year term on the Board of Review, which is an independent, quasi-judicial body charged with deciding higher-authority appeals regarding unemployment benefits and other disputes between the division and employers.
A lifelong Davie County resident, Brock said on his social media that he is seeking the office due to what he calls “the overwhelming support of those in Davie County who want a proven statesman in the office.” He says he brings years of leadership, efficiency, and constituent service with his previous work in public office.
“My commitment to serving people was the main reason I was humbly elected eight terms to the NC Senate,” said Brock.
Each county’s clerk of Superior Court is responsible for all clerical and record-keeping functions of the district, superior courts and judges probate and has exclusive original jurisdiction over matters relating to the probate of wills and presides over other legal matters.
