Letter: Warren works hard

We are blessed to have Harry Warren to represent Rowan County in the state Legislature. Harry is hard working and well-informed. I have personally asked him questions. Harry’s answers always reveal that he is aware of and has considered all sides of the issue before coming to a position that he supports. More than that, he is available to discuss others’ concerns and will address any concerns directly. Harry is willing to meet with neighborhood groups and civic organizations whenever possible.

Since Harry was elected and the Republican majority took control of the legislature, North Carolina has been designated as one of the states that is favorable to do business. This was not the case under Democrat control.It is also a state that has more people moving in than leaving. Our economy is growing. There are more and higher-paying jobs coming that will benefit all. Harry knows that we cannot tax and spend our way to prosperity.

Harry knows that private thrift, industry and responsible government are the way to a better tomorrow for Rowan County. Vote for Harry Warren NC District 76.
