Moe Davis is the qualified candidate

To the Editor:

There were 8,820 bills and joint resolutions submitted to Congress in 2019. Two-thirds were submitted in the House. Our representative should be someone who has shown the ability to study, analyze, and has the initiative to act in the best interest of Western North Carolina’s citizens and not be a rubber stamp for a political party. 

Which candidate is the best to represent WNC? 

Madison Cawthorn …  home schooled, denied admission to the Naval Academy, dropped out of college after one semester (poor grades), thought about online courses but has not shown initiative to try. 

Col. Moe Davis …. Shelby High School, Appalachian State University, J.D. Degree from N.C. Central University School of Law, L.L.M degree from the University of Virginia, JAG military attorney. 

Madison Cawthorn has not shown the initiative required to handle the volume of work to be an effective representative. Col. Moe Davis has shown the ability to handle the required study to be an effective voice for WNC and the moral courage to stand up for his beliefs.

Col. Davis is the only qualified candidate.
