To the Editor:

The 64th district in the House of Delegates represents the best that Virginia has to offer through its proud rural heritage and conservative values. It is important that we hold dear to those values while at the same time look for ways to promote economic development, a good education for future generations, and the protection of our rights under the Constitution.

It is for these reasons that we should elect Rex Alphin to represent us in Richmond. Rex has a heart for public service and believes that it is a requirement to know your neighbors in order to represent their concerns. During his life he has come to know Isle of Wight County and the 64th district very well as a third-generation farmer.

Since 2011, he has served on the Isle of Wight County Board of Supervisors fighting to keep taxes low, while continuing to advocate for quality services within the county.

Rex is a conservative who believes in the importance of the 2nd Amendment, reducing unnecessary regulations, promoting school choice, and recognizing the value of all life. He has also served on various committees across Hampton Roads during his time as a supervisor and has gained valuable experience working to find collaborative solutions to regional issues. These principles and skills will make him an influential voice in the General Assembly.

I hope the citizens of the 64th district will join me in voting for Rex Alphin in the Republican primary on June 13.
