In support of Lew

I am writing to endorse the candidacy of our family friend, Sean Lew, for the N.C. House, representing the 74th District. Because legislators are lawmakers, I believe Sean’s more than 20 years as an attorney will serve him, and us, well in the state House. Sean also brings his diligent commitment to providing a voice for those who need help to be heard. He holds the N.C. Bar Association’s William Thorp Award for his many hours of pro bono legal counsel to Hmong, an Asian ethnic group in N.C., as well as others with little means to pay. In addition to these good reasons to vote for this public servant, Sean has recently received the endorsement of both the state and the county associations of educators. What issue is of more urgency than our public school students, teachers and staffs? We can trust these professional groups when they recognize a candidate’s dedication to raising teacher pay and improving our system. For these reasons, I urge you to use your May 17 primary ballot to vote for a new 74th District voice in Raleigh. Choose Sean Lew.
