Current commissioner and candidate for the N.C. Senate District 25, Gene McIntyre, was released from Carolina’s Medical Center Friday after a one-car accident, according to a press release sent out by his campaign.
McIntyre was on his way to a campaign event when he flipped his truck. He has taken to Stanly Regional Medical Center and then later transferred to Carolina’s Medical Center for further evaluation.
McIntyre is a Stanly County native and served as an educator in the school system for 33 years as a teacher, coach, and assistant principle.
He and wife, Sue Parker live in New London and have two children and four grandchildren. He is currently a Stanly County Commissioner and is running against Gene McLaurin for the N.C. Senate District 25 seat.
“Gene is resting comfortably with his wife, Sue, and children. They are thankful for the prayers and well wishes being sent,” said his campaign. “Gene fully intends to be back out on the campaign trail very soon, spreading his positive message for the need of a conservative, effective senator for the 25th District in Raleigh. Please continue to keep Gene in your thoughts and prayers.”
