Letter to the Editor: Linda Howard Turner in support of Chris Humphrey
Jeff and I choose to make our home in Eastern North Carolina. We love our community and the many fine people who call rural North Carolina home. Over the years, our family has been blessed to be part of agriculture, the industry with the single largest economic impact on our state, and certainly rural North Carolina.
While we have branched out into other industries to help provide jobs, agribusiness will always be very meaningful to us. In fact, had it not been for agriculture we could not have stayed here nor made other investments here.
Love of our community demands I share my concerns for rural North Carolina, and specifically Lenoir County. Small towns are being left behind, and we must take action in order for our children to thrive and our communities to survive in the future.
Lenoir County needs a state house representative who understands the specifics of our economic and educational difficulties. Lenoir County must have a representative who understands the urgency of our needs, and puts the interests of our citizens first, not a political party.
Lenoir County must have a representative with the ability to introduce change, and persuade other lawmakers to provide the help we, and all rural areas, desperately need.
Chris Humphrey understands the impact of farming, and agribusiness on the economy in North Carolina. Agribusiness is especially important to the people of Lenoir County and other rural areas! Chris Humphrey will fight to protect the people, and our economic engine.
Chris Humphrey will not turn his back on farmers, after pledging to help them. Chris Humphrey understands the difficulties faced by the educational system in economically disadvantaged counties, like ours.
We need an advocate who has the energy, respect, and ability to bring different results home for the people of District 12. When elected, Chris will be the advocate we need to bring positive change to the people of this district.
I urge you to please join me in voting for Chris Humphrey for N.C. House District 12!
Linda Howard Turner
