To the Editor:

I heartily endorse Rex Alphin as candidate for the 64th District of the Virginia House of Delegates.

Rex has acquired a great deal of experience dealing with local, county and state legislation as he has served Isle of Wight County on its Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors.

Not only has Rex been my longtime friend, but I had the pleasure of being employed by him for a period of three years. In all my dealings with Rex, I have found him to be consistently hard-working, driven, fair and congenial. He is careful with his words and actions, and treats everyone with equal respect. His values are sound. He is fiscally conservative and is a responsible steward of other people’s money.

In my discussions with Rex on a wide variety of subjects, I find him to be informed on current local and state issues, constantly researching and talking to the local residents to garner opinions on the topics of the day.

I feel this genuine interest in the views of others to be a valuable asset when serving them. Because he is a third-generation farmer, he is cognizant of the risks associated with small businesses as well as those who earn their living from the land.

In addition to my endorsement, I would encourage anyone in the 64th District to contact Rex and talk to him. I assure you the conversation will be rich and rewarding.
