To the editor:

Merriam-Webster defines the word judge as follows: “a public official authorized to decide questions brought before a court”. I believe Jon Welborn to be well-suited for Davie/Davidson District Court Judge.

Jon and I met in 2008 when he and his wife moved to Davie County. While Jon’s Campaign Card list his many professional qualifications, I want to speak on behalf of Jon, both as a person and a friend. Jon and I are both actively involved at Hillsdale United Methodist Church; I have had the pleasure of observing Jon in numerous leadership roles over the years. He has faithfully served as usher, life group co-leader, and VBS group leader. Perhaps, more significantly, I have witnessed Jon’s ability to step up in a crisis and be fully present and engaged for the long haul in his calm and steady way.

On a wider level, Jon supported Davie County’s Family Promise during our church’s rotation. He also served on the Family Promise Board in the early years.

Jon is a dedicated husband and devoted father. He can often be found on the Little League Field, coaching his daughters’ ball teams.

Not only does Jon love God, family, and country, he loves North Carolina. Jon was born and reared in Wilkes County, where his mother still lives, today. Jon loves this dear county and our surrounding counties.

Christian values are exemplified in Jon’s life. His personal integrity, character, and moral values make Jon Welborn the man to support and vote for Davie/Davidson District Court Judge.
