To the Editor:

As Statesville residents prepare for their municipal elections, I want to speak out on behalf of Jennifer Thorson DiFiore, candidate for the Ward 4 seat on the City Council, in the October 10 election. I’ve known Jennifer for quite some time and have seen her in various capacities that demonstrate she would be an ideal representative of Statesville residents.

I have personally witnessed Jennifer live a life of advocacy for students and young women throughout Iredell County. She’s not an “in your face” person. She works so often behind the scenes to promote young people and help them achieve their potential. I’m certain that mindset would be a major plus for the City Council. Statesville has a lot of unlocked potential, and I believe Jennifer could be the key.
