Fred Steen has filed to keep the District 76 N.C. House of Representatives seat he has held since 2004.
Steen, 47, filed on Monday, the first day of the filing period for the 2008 elections.
He has served since February 2004 when he was appointed to fill the seat made vacant by the death of Eugene McCombs. He has since won two elections outright.
“It has been my honor to represent the good people of Rowan County and I hope that they will continue to place their trust in me,” Steen said.
Steen is a Landis Republican who said he’s proud of his appointments to a number of House committees, especially the House Select Committee on Municipal Annexations.
Steen said he’s opposed to forced annexations and is a fiscal conservative.
“We have a spending problem in Raleigh,” Steen said. “Too many liberal politicians think more government is the solution. However, less government spending and less government regulation is the best answer to maintaining a strong economy.”
Among the House committees on which Steen serves: Agriculture, Appropriations, vice chairman of General Government, Commerce, Ethics, Local Government II, Rules, Transportation and vice chairman of Wildlife Resources.
He also serves as a member of the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services.
He’s on the following interim committees: House Select Committee on Comprehensive Rail Plan for North Carolina and the House Select Committee on Home Foreclosures.
Steen, a finance consultant, is married to Tena Yow Steen. The couple has two grown children.
In other filings Tuesday, Lee Efird filed for re-election to the Kannapolis City Board of Education and Linda McAbee filed for re-election as Cabarrus County Register of Deeds. Both filed in Concord.
