All cite Harris will best represent Shore Values
Salisbury – Today State Senator Andy Harris picked up five key endorsements from elected officials in Wicomico County. Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis, Council President John Cannon, Councilwoman Gail Bartkovich, Councilman Joe Holloway, and former Secretary of Agriculture Lew Riley all endorsed Andy Harris at a press conference held at the Chamber of Commerce in Salisbury. These five individuals who currently represent or have represented Wicomico County join Senator Rich Colburn and Senator Lowell Stotzfus who previously endorsed Andy’s campaign.
While each of the individuals expressed different reasons for endorsing Andy Harris, they all agreed that Andy will best represent Shore values. Here are some comments from the press conference:
Sheriff Mike Lewis: “Andy has served Maryland well and it is time to take it to the next level” “Illegal Immigration is a serious concern and Andy has a strong record against illegal immigration.”
Council President John Cannon: “I have two criteria when endorsing a candidate: where they stand on the issues and character. Andy is right on the issues and a man of great character.” “With Andy, we will have a congressman that can go and convince others that my problems are their concern.” “Andy is a fiscal conservative who will fight for fiscal policies on the national level”
Councilwoman Gail Bartkovich: “Andy Harris will represent Wicomico County and the Eastern Shore well in Congress.”
Councilman Joe Holloway: “His views and mine fall along the same lines.” “Andy is against gun-control.”
Former Secretary of Agriculture Lew Riley: “Andy was one of the first state senators to put agriculture on a level playing field.”
“I am humbled these elected officials from the Eastern Shore believe I will best represent Shore values in Congress,” said Andy Harris. “In Washington, I will fight to lower taxes and decrease wasteful government spending, so our economy will produce high-paying jobs for families across the first district.”
Andy has been endorsed by former Governor Robert L. Ehrlich, six of the eight state senators who represent parts of the district, ten members of the House of Delegates, Gun Owners of America, National Right to Life Committee PAC, Eagle Forum PAC, RNC Life PAC, The Washington Times, and numerous other former state and local elected officials.
