Man of integrity / October 31, 2013

Dear Viewpoint:

I have had the opportunity to meet both candidates running for Commonwealth’s Attorney since the campaign season began. I feel it is important to vote based on God’s Holy Word, the Bible. In doing so, I find Mike Freshour to be a man of integrity and a man with strong, conservative values as a Christian. He is not afraid to make a stand for what is right. I believe he has what it takes to be the Commonwealth’s Attorney as he has been in that role for the past 14 months. He has 10 years of prosecution experience and has worked he way to the top. I feel he has the best interest of the citizens of Halifax County at heart in doing his job. He has been working hard to keep our community safe. I especially like the way he has carried himself in a professional manner throughout this campaign.

My vote goes to Mike Freshour and I would ask my family and friends to join me in that support on November 5th.
