To the editor:

On June 13, you will have an opportunity to elect one of the most admirable people I have had the pleasure of meeting since moving to Suffolk from Virginia Beach in July 2011.

Emily Brewer was one of the first people I met, while we worked together on a state senate campaign, and she made me feel completely at home. Our friendship formed instantly.
Since I’ve known Emily, she has been a prime example of what a servant-leader is in the community.

Robert K. Greenleaf said, “A servant-leader focuses primarily on the growth and well-being of people and the communities to which they belong.” That describes Emily perfectly.
Serving on multiple boards, such as the Paul D. Camp Community College Foundation Board and Suffolk Business Women, isn’t just a title for her. It’s a passion to make her community a little bit better and make someone’s life a little bit different.

Emily loves people, and she wants to see people do good for themselves. Emily is one of the few people who will drop what she is doing to help when someone is in need.

I can’t count how many times I have needed my friend, and she has been there for me each time. Emily listens and always offers the best advice and solutions, and she doesn’t just do it because she is my friend. It’s because she genuinely cares.
If Emily is elected, she will treat each of her constituents the same. Emily will be a servant-leader, not a politician. Again, this isn’t about a title for her.

Emily can offer strong legislative ideas and policies to help not just the citizens of the 64th House of Delegates District, but all of Virginia.
I wholeheartedly believe God places people in our lives for a reason, and I am certainly happy Emily came into mine.

I strongly hope you cast your vote for my friend, Emily Brewer, on June 13 in the Republican Primary for Delegate so she can touch your life like she has mine.
