FAITH — Brian Campbell says he should be elected as a Faith alderman because of his experience serving the community and his ability to listen to and respect others’ opinions.

Brian Campbell, 67, lives in Faith with his wife, Karren, and has never held an elected office. He filed July 23 for the Faith Board of Aldermen.

“It is my goal to keep the town of Faith a place where hometown appeal and values reign,” Campbell said. “By working with my community, I promise to do the best I can to keep Faith the place we all love calling ‘home.’ ”

Campbell is retired from Piedmont Natural Gas. He attended Rowan Technical Institute, now Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, to study business administration.

“When my family moved to Faith over 13 years ago, the town instantly took hold of a special place in my heart,” he said. “I have faithfully served at various institutes of the town over the years.”

A veteran of the U.S. Army, Campbell serves as a chaplain with the American Legion, a deacon at Faith Baptist Church and a weekly volunteer with Rowan Helping Ministries.

He is one of seven people, including three incumbents, running for one of five open seats on the Faith town board. Municipal election day is Nov. 5.
