I have known Patsy Keever for over 30 years. We were colleagues in Buncombe County Schools, and I was one of her constituents when she was a Buncombe County commissioner and our legislative representative in Raleigh. As a voter in Congressional District 10, she will have my vote.
Patsy has been a public servant most of her adult life. As a teacher she was a strong advocate for the well-being of children and parents. As a county commissioner and state legislator, Patsy clearly demonstrated her grasp of complex issues, her willingness to fight for her constituents and her ability to reach consensus.
Patsy is fearless. She will not back off when confronted with challenges. Rather, she will embrace issues, research and listen, and come to the best decision for those she represents, particularly the most vulnerable. She understands the role of government and the balance needed to be effective and efficient.
Patsy has my respect. When I think of words to describe her, these come to mind: compassionate, highly intelligent, energetic, prepared, dedicated to the democratic processes in our country, a woman of unquestionable integrity.
