“Public health is the most important thing to consider at this moment. We cannot be leaders in our community if we are not ensuring the public’s safety, and that means not exposing the public to the coronavirus during campaign stops. I am deeply disappointed that I will not be able to talk with members of my community in person at this time, but we will find other ways to communicate,” - Sam Edney, Candidate for NC 113
I want to be the strong voice we need in Raleigh.
I grew up in the Valley Hill Community of Henderson County on land my grandfather bought after returning from the Civil War. I have lived and worked here all my life. The people of Western North Carolina have been my friends, my employees, and my customers. I want to be the strong voice we need in Raleigh.
Man's capacity for justice makes democracy possible; but man's inclination to injustice makes democracy necessary.
