Revenue in North Carolina from military-related items is now at $66 billion annually. And with 775,000 retired veterans living here, we are the 8th largest retired military population. It is critical that we elect a Congressman with a history of supporting our national security, and those who serve so gallantly.
Chuck Edwards has a proven history of creating and passing legislation that support men and women in uniform, both active duty and retired. And he has successfully reached across the isle, setting aside partisan politics in order to do it!
Many of us have joined together to support Chuck and share the message for how he has supported, and continues to support those who have given so much for our freedom.
As a proud member of a four-generation military family, veterans issues are of paramount importance to me. Chuck Edwards strongly advocates for veterans! He actively listens, learns, and provides timely responses. Chuck puts legislative action plans into motion with a strategic understanding and an operational focus! I highly recommend Chuck Edwards for the District 11 Congressional seat.
We have been politically active in Henderson County and North Carolina. Bob have been past chairman of the Henderson County Board of Elections; Melody has been past chairman of the Henderson County Republican Woman's Club. We endorse NC Senator Chuck Edwards for the office of 14th NC Congressional District!
As a veteran of more than 300 combat missions in Vietnam and twenty-five years of active-duty service, I cannot over emphasize how critical it is to have a congressman that fully supports a strong military. As a former County Commissioner, I have worked with Senator Edwards on a number of issues and have firsthand knowledge of his strong support of our Constitution and our 2nd Amendment. His support of Senate Bill SB153 resulted in direct financial benefit for military personnel in North Carolina. It is imperative that we veterans do our part to send Chuck Edwards to the U S Congress.
As the widow of an Air Force veteran, I moved to North Carolina to be closer to family and was surprised to find that the state taxed veteran pensions. Thanks to Chuck Edwards’ strong leadership and the support of those who served, he fixed that issue. It is so wonderful to hear people recognize veterans and thank them for their service. Chuck Edwards takes that recognition and appreciation to the next level.
Senator Edwards has taken his business experience, organizational knowledge and expertise to Raleigh to the benefit of all NC citizens. His business experience has been instrumental in his key decision making when it comes to being a steward of the people’s resources, policy making and government operations. He is not a talker but a doer and consistently leads by example not only in his professional life but also his personal life. He is a dedicated conservative and Christian man who sets the example for others to follow.
It is my privilege to announce my sincere endorsement for Senator Chuck Edwards in his quest to win the Republican nomination for Congress in our 11th District of North Carolina. During my time as Sheriff of Henderson County, it was my honor to get to know Chuck and his family. Dedicating more than three decades of my life as a law enforcement officer, line officer, instructor and Sheriff has given me a unique perspective. Chuck has always respected the concerns of the law enforcement community and he has always been willing to listen. He evaluates every issue with attention and fairness. He is a true friend and supporter of law enforcement officers everywhere.
Senator Edwards has shown his effectiveness in sponsoring and successfully supporting conservative bills for WNC and the entire state, often without publicity. He listens to our input and always replies. He has selected very competent staff, and has shown the ability to navigate the political world in Raleigh while achieving good things for the citizen of WNC. As veterans, we know that his efforts on our behalf have positively benefited our lives. We wholeheartedly endorse him, and ask you to vote for Chuck Edwards for US Congress.
Chuck Edwards has proven he can listen and act on veterans issues. Chuck worked tirelessly to get the retired pay and Survivor Benefit Payments for spouses approved by the NC legislature. Even though there were many previous attempts to do so, all had failed either due to lack of will or lack of leadership by previous legislators. Chuck has never swayed from total support of those in uniform, and his state experience in the Senate and record proves the depth of his support!
I have been watching Chuck Edwards for a few years now. He is concerned about what veterans - and everyone in WNC - has to say, and he really listens. He is not only capable of representing WNC well in Raleigh, but he will be a breath of fresh air in Washington, too. His successes in the NC Senate prove his tenaciousness in fighting for the ideals he best represents - lower taxes, less spending, pro-life and pro Second Amendment.
As a former Naval Officer and North Carolina resident I am very supportive of Chuck Edwards for all he has done for the veterans of North Carolina to be our Congressman in Washington for District 11.
At 90 years old, I still enjoy working the polls for candidates that I endorse. I believe in Chuck Edwards. He support vets, both active and retired and that's why you'll find me working hard for him!
