Former candidate supports competitor

To the editor:

As a lifelong Democrat, I am giving my vote for House of Representatives District 33 to Kevin Battle. Kevin was my opponent in 2014, running with an “R” beside his name. While it was a tight race and a close loss, Kevin has earned my support over the past two years.

I have followed his voting record as well as his attendance and both are stellar. On all issues that matter to me, Kevin Battle voted as I would have hoped. He was thoughtful, considerate and thorough. He attended all sessions, including his committee meetings. Always returning every call or email, Kevin even texted me during critical votes. Writing an article in support of clean elections, Kevin went against the governor often to the dismay of his party members. That did not stop him. He voted his conscience every time.

We need more representatives like Kevin Battle in Augusta. Please give your support in the re-election of Kevin Battle to the House of Representatives.
