Letter writer: Stein offers experience, independence

Graphic by Lori Deaton

I have lived in North Carolina for most of my adult life. I have raised my children here. I have been paying attention to how politics have shaped our beautiful state. It is time for a change.

Josh Stein is my choice for attorney general and here is why: When it comes to the choosing North Carolina’s next attorney general, the decision is clear. Only one candidate, Josh Stein, offers the experience, the values and priorities, and the independence to fight for our families.

Josh Stein is ready to work for us on day one. He served eight years as senior assistant attorney general, taking on big banks, utility monopolies and pharmaceutical companies in our best interests. His opponent has no such experience.

When it comes to values and priorities, Josh Stein wants our state to be inclusive and looking forward. His opponent was a champion for the passage of House Bill 2, which has already cost our state thousands of jobs, hundreds of millions of dollars in investments and even the ACC and NCAA basketball tournaments. …

Josh Stein will serve as an independent advocate for the people of our state, not an out-of-state advocacy group. Josh Stein is the only choice in November for our people and our future.

    Josh Stein is a JOKE in Rawliegh …total joke.

    Buck Newton is the far superior real world choice with way more legal experience and is not an NC insider leftwinger like Stein.
