RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A former Durham County commissioner is the newest member of the North Carolina House.

MaryAnn Black took her seat on the House floor Wednesday after she was sworn in by House Speaker Tim Moore.

Black will serve the remainder of the two-year term of Larry Hall, who resigned last month to become Gov. Roy Cooper’s secretary of military and veterans affairs.

Cooper appointed Black to the legislature after Durham County Democratic activists chose her earlier this week to succeed Hall.

Black works for the Duke University Health System and has been chairwoman of the Durham Technical Community College trustee board.
