The start of 2014 is an exciting time for Mathews County as we are at the center of a special election, to be held Jan. 7, and I know my neighbors in Mathews care deeply about our county and hope all will plan to vote in this very important election.
I am writing you today to express my sincerest support for Lynwood Lewis in this very important special election and hope my neighbors in Mathews will join me in voting Tuesday, Jan. 7.
We must make certain we continue to have the common sense leadership that puts the needs and issues of Mathews County first! We were fortunate to have had this in Ralph Northam for the past six years, and I know with certainty that Lynwood Lewis is the only candidate that can properly represent the needs of our small community.
Over the years Lynwood and I have had long conversations about how unique Mathews and the Eastern Shore are as communities, and how alike we are with issues facing the state and local government and the mandates passed down from Richmond and Washington. Lynwood has always taken the time to discuss issues important to Mathews with me, and voted in the best interest of legislation affecting Mathews County. That is the kind of leadership I believe we desperately need and deserve in Richmond—a senator who communicates directly and honestly with citizens they represent.
As an Eastern Shore native, Lynwood Lewis understands the unique community we share in Mathews. He helped bring broadband to the Eastern Shore, create high tech jobs, and work with education leaders to make certain that students were prepared for jobs available in their community.
As a delegate, elected six times, he has worked in a bipartisan fashion in Richmond to make certain smaller localities have a voice in Richmond—not lobbyists!
It is important that we have a state senator who understands how unique Mathews is as a community, and I believe we are fortunate Lynwood Lewis is seeking to serve us.
Please join me in supporting Lynwood Lewis for State Senate by casting your vote for him on Tuesday, Jan. 7!
