Brewer ‘the best advocate for farmers’

To the editor:

As someone whose family has lived and farmed here for more than 100 years, I know that Emily Brewer will be the best advocate for farmers and the agriculture industry.

Emily has also lived in the region and has been active in the community her entire life. We need to send a leader to Richmond who understands the needs of farmers, large and small. Emily Brewer is that person.

If you don’t understand the challenges facing the agriculture industry, how can you work to provide solutions? I have talked with Emily and know that she will fight to reduce the number of unnecessary regulations, keep the taxes low and improve rural roads and bridges so all farmers can be successful.

Not only does Emily have a firm grasp on the policies we need in our rural community, she is the only candidate even talking about them. She’s not just talking about policy either; she is also offering actual, attainable solutions.

Emily is not a politician, and that’s why I know she will work hard for the people.

I will be supporting Emily Brewer for election as delegate of the 64th House of Delegates District on Nov. ,7 and I hope she can count on your vote, too.
