Letter: Berry for Kannapolis

I am writing in support of Dianne Berry, who is seeking re-election for a second term on the Kannapolis City Council.

Dianne has served Cabarrus Health Alliance for 20 years, as clerk to the Board of Health and she is also a human resources manager. She also oversees our customer service and employee safety programs. She has proven herself to be a dedicated and hard-working employee and one I have always been able to depend on.

When she asked my permission to run for City Council four years ago, I supported her without hesitation and told her she would be perfect for this role. And although her commitments have been many, she has always managed to make sure that her obligations at Cabarrus Health Alliance have been taken care of. Since her election in 2013, I have seen the passion that Dianne has for the city of Kannapolis that has never wavered.

At Cabarrus Health Alliance, she listens to our patients’ concerns and follows through to find a solution to problems. I can truthfully say Cabarrus Health Alliance values her dedicated work and knowledge, and we would not be the same without her.

I encourage the citizens of Kannapolis to support Dianne Berry in her bid for re-election on Nov. 7. Her vast knowledge of local and state government, the city of Kannapolis, and what’s happening right here in our community, are some of her greatest attributes.
