Strong leadership team

I am excited by the letters supporting Terri LeGrand for Senate District 31. Terri has the determination, skills and experience to represent us well in Raleigh. She will reach across the aisle to bring better education, health care, jobs, economic stability and clean air and water to all of us in central North Carolina. But she will not be able to do it alone. Dan Besse running for House District 74 will be able to collaborate on needed legislation. At the state level, Gov. Cooper, Yvonne Holley running for lieutenant governor, and Attorney General Josh Stein will work with the House and Senate to achieve these goals. Cal Cunningham, running for the U.S. Senate, will help states like North Carolina be a wonderful place to work, enjoy family life, experience a healthy environment and deal better with whatever Mother Nature throws at us.

This strong leadership team has already earned numerous endorsements. For instance, Terri LeGrand is endorsed by the North Carolina Association of Educators. Dan Besse is endorsed by the Winston-Salem Professional Firefighters. Yvonne Holley is endorsed by Democracy For America, and Josh Stein is endorsed by the League of Conservation Voters. Gov. Cooper has earned the endorsement of millions of voters. With a strong leadership team like this anchored by our neighbors Terri LeGrand and Dan Besse we can have hope for a better America. Support them now and vote for them this fall.
