Letter: Heggins a tireless advocate
Experienced, innovative, inclusive and articulate, Al Heggins is uniquely qualified to serve on the Salisbury City Council. She’s a veteran and an educator and is fluent in Spanish. She led an award-winning human relations department for 12 years, during which time President Barack Obama named her a Champion of Change.
Al has a master’s degree in education with an emphasis in linguistics and culture. She has extensive training as a mediator and fair housing specialist, and she completed the Municipal and County Administration Course at the UNC School of Government. A wife, mother, grandmother and small business owner, Al is a tireless community advocate, visionary leader and skilled relationship builder.
If you believe that Salisbury’s cultural, racial and ethnic diversity is our greatest untapped strength, vote for Al. She will work to bring to the table people who have not had a voice. In fact, Al will work to build a bigger table.
Salisbury voters have a profound opportunity on Nov. 7 to put Al Heggins on the City Council. Vote like your city depends on it.
