Democrat Steve Unger is challenging Republican incumbent Chris Millis in North Carolina’s House District 16, which includes Pender County and the northwest corner of Onslow County.  Unger says transportation infrastructure is his number one issue, and that transportation issues need to be looked at regionally, not just county by county:

·      Northeast Regional Library, 1241 Military Cutoff Road
