To the editor:

First of all, I would like to encourage everyone to vote June 13, 2017, in the primary election.

I will be placing my vote for Rex Alphin to represent the 64th District in the House of Delegates.

Rex is a gentleman with high integrity, whom I have known since I was in my teens. He made a very positive and healthy impact on my life as one of the youth leaders in our church.

I personally like that he is a lifetime local resident, who has worked in Isle of Wight County and knows the people he would be representing. He has the political experience from being on the Board of Supervisors that I feel is needed to represent our community at the state level.

I will be the first to admit that I did not agree with all of his decisions during his time serving on the Isle of Wight County Board of Supervisors, but I have a tremendous amount of respect for the fact that each time I voiced my disagreement with his decisions, he took the time to listen to my concerns and explain why he made the decision he made.

Unfortunately, I cannot say that of all of the board members and elected officials at the state level that I have contacted over the years, most of whom did not even acknowledge my emails or letters.

Rex taking the time, in my opinion, shows how much he cares about the people he represents.

Please get out and vote June 13 and vote for Rex Alphin to represent the 64th District for the House of Delegates.
