Letter to the Editor: Ray Collier for Chris Humphrey
It is with great excitement that I am writing you today to express my full support of Chris Humphrey for North Carolina House of Representatives, District 12. I have had the honor of knowing Chris for years and I can say unequivocally he is the person we need representing us in Raleigh.
His opponent is not supportive of the agriculture industry, and he proved that to all of us this year. Our farming community was devastated when his opponent chose party politics over an industry that is so incredibly important to the area he represents. We can’t do the same thing over and over, and expect different results. It is time for us to take action for different results.
Chris will go to Raleigh to help protect the people and improve the economy in rural areas. As the last year has shown us, it is imperative that we have effective representation in the General Assembly. If we choose to stand on the sidelines, our economy, our communities and our very families can be harmed. We can lose everything we have worked for if we depend on a representative who turns his back on us.
Chris has been giving this race everything he has. He has received tremendous local support from elected officials, respected business leaders and good men and women from all walks of life. His supporters are Republicans, Democrats and independents.
Campaigns for state office can be very difficult, but he is up to the challenge. He has personally made hundreds of fundraising phone calls and traveled thousands of miles in Lenoir and Pitt Counties. He has knocked on doors and spent countless hours attending meetings and talking to people. We need a lawmaker with his commitment to bringing a better future to our district.
If you want a better future for the people of District 12, please vote for Chris Humphrey. I encourage you to vote early and please take friends with you to the polls!
