Letter to the editor: Candidate believes in more education funding

To the editor:

This letter is in support of Terri LeGrand for N.C. Senate District 31. I know Terri and I am sure she will work hard for all of us in Davie County and throughout the state. She believes in affordable healthcare for all which is especially important during this pandemic when so many people lost their jobs through no fault of their own. Medicaid expansion would benefit more than 400,000 North Carolinians and she believes it is only fair to give the voters a choice.

Think about the benefits we would have accrued if the Legislature had adopted it five years ago when it became available. Better unemployment benefits would also help many people get through their current job losses and help them start new small businesses which are the backbone of job creation.

Terri also believes in the Second Amendment and is in favor of guns for our hunters and for our self-defense. She does not believe in defunding the police. She does believe in more funding for education, so that all of our children can have access to a quality education. She is an educator, an attorney, parent, and fighter for clean air and water.
