Keith Duncan, 58, of Eden announced his candidacy for the North Carolina House of Representatives. Duncan currently serves on the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners and has 15 years of experience on the Board.
“The cost to keep a roof over your head, put food on the table and gas in your car continues to go up and average North Carolinians are struggling to make ends meet,” said Keith Duncan. “I believe that a strong middle class builds a better, stronger North Carolina. Unfortunately, corporate lobbyists in Raleigh have gained too much influence and are working to stack the deck against rural North Carolina. I will fight to put our families first, to create jobs and grow our economy and build a better North Carolina for all of our families.”
Duncan is running for House District 65 which is made up of part of Rockingham County and Caswell County. The seat is currently held by Republican incumbent Representative Bert Jones.
“Keith Duncan is a successful small businessman and a respected County Commissioner who has served his community for more than a decade,” said Democratic Leader Larry D. Hall. “He is the ideal candidate for his district and will be an outstanding Representative who will put the teachers, kids, parents and small businesses of Rockingham and Caswell first.”
Keith has been married to his wife Lisa for 33 years and they have two daughters, Lauren and Rebekah. He owns Shiloh Utilities, a utility construction company based in Eden, NC. Keith has been active in his community. He serves on the Board of Directors for the First Citizens Bank of Rockingham County, the Board of Directors for Centerpoint in Winston-Salem and on the Board of Directors for Social Services and Public Health in Rockingham County. He is a former Board member of the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners. Keith and his wife attend First Presbyterian Church in Eden, where he has been active in mission trips to Mexico.
