N.C. Sen. Joyce Krawiec, R-Forsyth, announced Monday that she is retiring and will not run for re-election in 2024.
A member of the N.C. Senate since 2014, Krawiec has been elected by constituents in Forsyth, Davie, Stokes, and Yadkin counties to her 31st District seat.
“It has been a true blessing to serve my constituents in the Senate,” Krawiec said in a statement released by her office. “I am proud of what we have accomplished over the last nine years. As I reflect on my time in office I can’t help but think about the incredible change our state has seen. North Carolina is truly the best state in the country, in no small part because of the numerous reforms the General Assembly has pursued. It has been an honor to play a role in that.”
Republican leaders from Forsyth and Yadkin counties named her to fill the seat of Pete Brunstetter, who resigned in January 2014, to take a position with Novant Health.
