Re: “... about the lieutenant governor

I am just a concerned Wake County Young Democrat who thinks Walter Dalton is the best prepared candidate our party has for the office!

Re: “... about the lieutenant governor

Mr. Geary, You were grossly negligent in not mentioning Senator Walter Dalton of Rutherford County in your article about the race for NC Lt. Governor. To not include Senator Dalton in your list of progressive-minded Democrats after all the legislative accomplishments Dalton has oversaw as a legislator is ridiculous. As Chairman of the Senate Education Committee, Dalton was responsible for various pieces of progressive minded legislation that improved the academics of North Carolina schoolchildren and the working conditions for North Carolina's teachers. His forward thinking ideas has allowed teen agers the opportunity to earn credits towards an Associates Degree while in high school, a step for many which brings the security of a job and much needed income. As a native rural Carolinian, Dalton understands the challenges our rural counties face in this time of economic transformation. The Council of State will be well-served with Dalton's insight on rural economic and state education issues. These accomplishments are progressive and have affected the lives of thousands of Carolinians in a positive manner. When you combine Senator Dalton's legislative record with his general common sense approach to problems facing our state, Senator Dalton rises above all the other candidates that you mention in this piece and is by far the most qualified individual running for Lt. Governor on both the Democrat and Republican side. I would hope you would do more research and compare all candidates seeking this office so that your readers get a true representation of their accomplishments as public servants. If you do this research, you will find that Senator Dalton's record is impressive and has helped our state maintain its position as a progressive leader in the southeast.
