Principled conservative

Dear Editor,

I had previously met State Sen. Joyce Krawiec, but only recently have I had the opportunity to learn more about her record as an elected official and developed impressions regarding her character. I have also recently talked with some who have long known and worked with her. Bottom line: I am deeply impressed! A principled conservative, accomplished businesswoman, long-time grass roots activist and, it seems, one of the hardest working persons in the state legislature, Sen. Krawiec also strikes me as humble, an ordinary citizen. I believe she is the essence of what our elected representatives should be – a servant leader.

One example of her good work as a legislator involves her role as one of two primary sponsors of the Autism Bill signed into law in October 2015. The law now requires all private health insurers in NC to provide coverage for the screening, diagnosis and treatment of autistic children through their 18th birthday.

Sen. Krawiec faces a competitive Republican primary election on Tuesday, May 8. I encourage Republican and independent voters in Forsyth and Davie counties to look at the issues, participate in the primary and support Joyce Krawiec for state senate.
