State senator to seek 2nd term 
Feb 1, 2006 : 8:00 pm ET

DURHAM -- State Sen. Bob Atwater, whose district includes the southwestern portion of Durham, is seeking a second term. Atwater announced Wednesday he will run for re-election to the District 18 seat, which also represents Chatham and Lee counties.

Atwater said in a press release he'd be honored to serve again.

"I've become quite familiar with the many diverse communities of this district and it's a privilege to represent them," he said. "I certainly intend to serve them with the same diligence if I'm re-elected."

Atwater plans to be at the Chatham County Board of Elections office in Pittsboro when filing opens at noon Feb. l 3.

Atwater was a Chatham County commissioner before beating Republican Christine Mumma to the Senate seat vacated by Wib Gulley in 2004. Durham County residents make up more than 40 percent of the district's population.

The retired UNC health affairs administrator ran on a platform of job creation and education support. Among the bills he sponsored in his first term was an act facilitating public-private partnerships in Durham for capital improvement.

Atwater serves as vice chairman of the Agriculture/Environment/Natural Resources Committee. His other appointments included service on the Appropriations/Base Budget, Finance and Appropriations on Education/Higher Education committees.
