Letter: Restaurant fundraiser sealed vote for Heggins

I’ve been reading some excellent letters in the Post that explain in wonderful detail why we should all re-elect Al Heggins to the Salisbury City Council. She is fantastically qualified and has only begun to steer our city in a successful direction.

My reason is simple, and it was solidified during a campaign fundraiser at Monterrey restaurant.

I spent most of my time that night greeting and checking people in. Midway through the evening, I noticed that Al had not gotten anything to eat. This is a regular occurrence and why she is a perfect fit for council. She spends all of her time making sure that everyone else around her is taken care of and enjoying whatever event is taking place.

While serving on council, I’ve noticed that this quality of ensuring everyone’s comfort carries over to everything she does. From the very simple gesture of calling City Hall the “people’s house,” to reiterating her desire to ensure opportunity zones avoid gentrification, her heart and mind are always focused on us, the citizens she serves.

I urge everyone to visit her website, alheggins.com to learn more about her life and purpose. Then, make sure to vote; early voting has already started.
