Raleigh – Rep. Jamie Boles (R-Moore) was appointed this week by Speaker Thom Tillis as Chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Justice & Public Safety, and was also tapped to serve as Deputy Majority Whip for the House Republican Caucus.
“I am honored to have an important leadership role in the House,” said Boles. “I look forward to using my years of experience to build on the progress we have made in establishing common-sense policies on issues affecting North Carolina’s citizens.”
The increased responsibility ensures that Boles will play a key role in the North Carolina House of Representatives, where he is beginning his third term. As chairman of the subcommittee, Boles will be one of the leading voices in directing policy and appropriating state funds for justice and public safety needs. As Deputy Majority Whip, Boles will help count votes for the Republican Caucus and work to keep the 77-member group in step.
“Jamie Boles is one of the most dedicated and well-respected members of this body,” said Tillis. “It is critical for state government to ensure that our citizens are receiving the services they need from our judicial system and that our public safety officials are fully equipped to protect the public. Rep. Boles’ leadership is critical to our success in that regard.”
Boles was first elected in 2008. He was sworn in for his third term when the legislature convened on Wednesday, January 9th. Reps. Leo Daughtry (R-Johnston), Pat Hurley (R-Randolph) and John Faircloth (R-Guilford) will co-chair the Appropriations Subcommittee on Justice & Public Safety.
