I’m the spouse of an elected official, the one you never hear about, who sees and hears it all.
My husband, Dale Folwell, is applying to be your next lieutenant governor. For most of our 26 years together, he has been in public service.
I support him not because I’m married to him, but because he got here by climbing his own ladder with his bare hands. As speaker pro tem of the N.C. House, he feels the anxieties that North Carolinians are facing.
The son of a single parent switchboard operator, he never felt entitled to anything. He knew the joy of achievement, not the sense of entitlement, built this country.
He will never back down from any conservative battle that could save one job, tax dollar, mind or life. His refrain: “Tell me your problem so I can fix it.”
The next lieutenant governor must have experience fixing government agencies, not just creating more laws. He must be a verb, not a noun – one who gets people back to work and liberates them to have control over their own lives. Can one person really change the direction of North Carolina?
Yes, you can by voting for Dale Folwell for lieutenant governor on May 8.
