Letter to the editor: Heggins for city council

Heggins for council

Al Heggins is a great asset for Salisbury and we need her on the city council. Not only does she have the knowledge on how local governments work, she has the passion and temperament to work with others to find solutions to problems. Al knows how to stay at the table until a solution is found. She has the ability to empower people to work for the common good and there is none that she is not able to work with in Salisbury. She brought a diverse community together to focus on stopping the violence in Salisbury. A vote for Al is a vote for a safe and vibrant community, a strong Salisbury in which every voice matters!

Her service in the military already demonstrates her commitment to country, and her service in the Salisbury community shows her belief in the future of Salisbury. She is willing to throw her herself into solving the problems, especially the violence, that is hindering the growth of our beloved city. She is very much aware that violence is a symptom of what ails Salisbury, and she is ready to roll down her sleeves and help the Salisbury community to get to the root of the problem. If you are like me and want Salisbury to become a safe and vibrant city for all its citizens, you will join me in voting for Al and thus make sure that she is on the city council.

Al Heggins has the local knowledge, temperament, passion, compassion and tenacity that is necessary to move Salisbury forward into a positive trajectory for the citizens of Salisbury. We definitely need Al on the city council to help in finding ways to get Salisbury strong and vibrant as the capital city of Rowan county. Vote for Al Heggins!
