Letter: Heggins is leader, fighter for all in Salisbury

For this important 2019 election, I am endorsing Al Heggins for Salisbury City Council.

Al has worked hard and effectively for the City of Salisbury. I believe she will continue being a strong and positive growth to the city’s economic development. She recognizes the need to end the school-to-prison pipeline, affordable housing, workforce development and community involvement. She brings superior credentials and professionalism to the city. Since being mayor, she has made it clear that the Salisbury City Hall is the “people’s house.” She recognizes all the people of Salisbury, no matter the race, color, age, sex or nationality. She promotes an atmosphere of openness and love.

Beyond a doubt, Al is the most qualified and diverse person running for City Council.

What I admire most about Al is her selfless care for the community and commitment to promoting Salisbury. She is a community builder, thoughtful supporter and great mayor. I support Al for moving Salisbury forward with empowerment and citizen involvement. I have found her to be fair, sincere, caring and focused on community goals. Al knows how to bring people together by bridging division.

She listens closely to the public’s questions and concerns, which sets her apart from all the other candidates. While bringing a vision of progress and growth for the future, Al has a record of success.

Our city has benefited significantly during the years Al has served as mayor. Take time to embrace the wide range of endorsements for Al’s candidacy.

With proud enthusiasm, I encourage all to vote Al Heggins for Salisbury City Council.
