A vote for Giordano / October 24, 2013

Dear Viewpoint:

Some years ago, Larry Giordano, and his wife Rae, set out on a journey searching for a better place to live, to call home, and found Halifax County, Virginia. Since that time Larry has built a home, started a farm, became involved in this community, and set down permanent roots.

I first met Larry and Rae about seven years ago. Since that time they have become good friends and neighbors. Larry is a deacon at our church and I have served on committees with him. Having had ample opportunity to see Larry in action, I have found him to be an honest, Christian, family man. Again and again I have been impressed with his ability to lead, organize, and problem solve.

I heartily recommend Larry Giordano for the office of Board of Supervisors from the 6th District.

Respectfully, Marilyn M. Murphy
