Letter: Heggins works for betterment of all

I am supporting Al Heggins for city council. I am a person who loses hope easily. It is not difficult to do so in today’s political climate.

Heggins gives me hope and that is a rare thing. I feel very strongly that she has done so much to move Salisbury forward and put our city in a better position to attract industry and tourism. She has really propelled Salisbury into a position of national recognition by bringing representatives from the white house to Salisbury to talk about opportunity zones. She has also networked with other mayors across the United States in order to gain as much knowledge and shared wisdom as possible for the benefit of Salisbury.

Rather than focusing on our political differences, Heggins does everything in her power as mayor to work for the betterment of all of the citizens of this city. Finally, Heggins made the city council chamber “the people’s house” where all citizens have a voice and are heard. People are not only heard, but everyone is made to feel comfortable when addressing the council. Even when she may not personally agree, she never demeans or belittles anyone who comes to speak before the council.

Her smile is warm and welcoming. She has a way of putting everyone at ease, without tolerating any personal disrespect for the council. Heggins provides a sense of strength and hope for the future for all citizens of Salisbury.

Every election is important, but this one is particularly important. As mayor, Heggins has been standing for us, for the people and we need to stand with her now. #SalisburyStrong #SalisburyStandingTogether
