To the editor:

Fellow Citizens of Davie and Davidson County: Being a retired Police Chief of Cooleemee and Assistant Chief with Mocksville Police Department, I have had the privilege of working alongside Eric Farr Candidate for District Court Judge. Eric has always shown respect and compassion for this community. His time as assistant district attorney and magistrate has been marked by collaboration, professionalism, and dedication to the law.

Eric has always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility and fairness. He is an  honest and moral man with excellent scholastic accomplishments. His good judgement and  mature outlook will ensure a logical, fair and practical approach to the difficult decisions that a  district court judge must make. Eric is a Christian man and family man, which speaks volumes  to me. I am thankful for the working relationship we have had over the years.

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Eric professionally and personally as our careers and civic involvement have overlapped. Eric’s dedication to the community is evident supporting Davie County little league, Davie Pregnancy Center, Cooleemee Community Fall Festival, parades, Davie and Davidson County GOP.

He has been in private practice law, magistrate and assistant district attorney. Working with him over the past years, he has proven himself to be an honorable, trustworthy member of this county and in the law enforcement community. His family is very invested in Davie/Davidson County. We would be a fortunate community to have him as our District Court Judge.

Despite his political and professional achievements, Eric would probably be the first one to  admit that his proudest accomplishment is his family. If you spoke to him about his wife and two children, you would hear about his devotion to them, a quality that serves him well in his professional life.

Eric exemplifies all of the virtues of a great judge, and has proven himself to be a judge we want to see in Davie and Davidson County. I have been in law enforcement for 33 years and been involved in court systems. This candidate will not disappoint our counties with his service. For these reasons, I am supporting Eric Farr for District court Judge.

Please join me in voting for Eric Farr for Judge in the primary election May 17. You will not be disappointed in your decision.
