Take a look at Phil FeaganPublished 8:54am Wednesday, October 24, 2012
To the editor:
Polk County voters, Republicans as well as Democrats, should take a good look at Phil Feagan, the Democratic candidate for state senator, on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
Phil is superbly qualified for the N.C. Senate, having graduated with honors from UNC in Chapel Hill with a double major in history and political science. He worked for five years in Washington DC as a congressional aid to the Honorable David Price of Raleigh before returning to UNC to earn a law degree.
Phil knows what needs to be done at the state level, and also for Polk County, his home county since birth. He will work hard to recruit business, support education and do whatever is best for all citizens of North Carolina regardless of party affiliation.
I am a lifelong Republican who has lived here for 34 years, but I’m voting for Phil, and for George Alley, also from Polk County, who is a candidate for the state house in Raleigh.
Phil’s family has lived in Polk County for generations. He grew up in Columbus and attended our public schools where his mother and both his grandmothers taught and his aunt was superintendent.
If we combine our votes on Nov. 6, Polk County residents will have local representatives in the North Carolina General Assembly for the first time in nearly 50 years. No county in the state has gone longer without representation!
I am delighted that both Phil Feagan and George Alley are running for public office and I hope you’ll join me in voting for them. The citizens of Polk County deserve to be represented in the General Assembly, and on Nov. 6 we’ll have the power to make it happen!
