To the editor:

Rex Alphin is by far the best candidate for the House of Delegates seat in the 64th District.

In the 40 years of our friendship, I have known Rex to be consistently a man of character and integrity. His word is his bond.

He listens to people, always wanting to know what others think. This helps his opinions to be well-rounded and wise.

Rex is a solid, life-long citizen of the district, having been a successful businessman here, with his home and all his businesses in the 64th.

Rex is pro-life, pro-second amendment, and he is experienced as an elected official, having served in Isle of Wight governance for many years (Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors). Rex Alphin is a proven leader with deep and abiding ties to the district.

Rex understands the needs and concerns of the people of the 64th. He believes in a government that provides its people with an opportunity to be successful.

Rex is a third-generation farmer, a solid family man. With no real desire to disparage his opponent, I must add that Rex Alphin is the only candidate for this seat who has run three businesses in the district. He is the only candidate with local governing experience.

The 64th District will be best served by electing Rex Alphin to represent us.
