Unique perspective

SoVaNow.com / October 31, 2013


Dear Viewpoint:

I believe I have a unique perspective on the job that Mike Freshour has done in the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office because I have been the office manager of that office for ten years. I began employment in that office in March 2004 and Mike began employment several months later.

Given the length of time I have worked with Mike and watched as he performed his duties, I can tell you without a doubt that the county is well served by electing Mike Freshour to continue as our Commonwealth’s Attorney. He is intelligent, thoughtful, fair, and well respected by the legal community – in short, he is an excellent experienced prosecutor.

He has my total vote of confidence and I am pleased to write a letter on his behalf. I will be voting for Mike Freshour on November 5th and I hope that you do too.

Sincerely,

Carolyn Slayton
