MOREHEAD CITY (WNCT) — A Carteret County commissioner is stepping down from his position due to health problems.

Bill Smith represented District 2 in the county since 2010. In a statement released Monday night, he said, “In my comments shared with commissioners (Monday) evening announcing my intent to resign, I thanked a lot of people who have been instrumental in my success over the last 10 years. With their help, support and guidance, I have done my job as a commissioner with what I felt was best for Carteret County and not for Bill Smith.”

Smith’s resignation becomes official on Feb. 1.
