Here are some thoughts on why these commissioners and school board members have come forward to support me.

Tom Benton – Chair Wake School Board,  “Erv has always been a supporter of strong public schools in Wake County. He has expressed some innovative ideas about funding that are worth examining.”

Jim Martin – Wake County Board of Education, District 5, –  “I have known Erv Portman for more than 15 years as a wise business leader, an effective public servant and a friend.   He both values and understands the diverse communities of Wake County.  I know that as a County Commissioner he will be a great partner as we work to advance public education in our county.”

Wake County Commissioner’s Endorse Erv

Wake has a great county board and I am proud to be endorsed by so many of those serving.

On making his endorsement of Erv, Commissioner Sig Hutchinson said “Erv has the experience and knowledge as a former Commissioner and Cary Town Council Member, to continue moving Wake County forward supporting public education,   job creation and a safe and clean environment. As a longtime friend and colleague, I have the greatest amount of respect and appreciation for Erv and look forward to serving with him as a Wake County Commissioner.”

Wake County is the second fastest growing large county in America. That growth places challenges that we must face. Erv will work with the rest of the board to make sure we build new schools to better keep up with growth. He will work to protect the natural beauty of Wake County, by preserving open space, parks and greenways for future generations to enjoy. He will protect our lakes and be sure we keep our drinking water clean and pure. That’s why these commissioners who know the job, know Erv will help them make our county better.

district2Matt Calabria – Wake county Commissioner, – “Erv is a committed, passionate advocate for what our community needs: strong schools, a healthy environment, and a vibrant economy. A small business owner and longtime public servant, Erv’s impressive track record more than speaks for itself. His forward–thinking leadership will serve the county well.”

Sig Hutchinson – Vice Chair, Wake County Commission, – “Erv has the  experience and knowledge as a previously serving Commissioner and former Cary Town Council Member,  to continue moving Wake County forward supporting public education, job creation and a safe and clean environment. As a longtime friend and colleague, I have the greatest amount of respect and appreciation for Erv and look forward to serving with him as a Wake County Commissioner. “

 

Erv asks for your support to keep Wake county one of the best places in the nation to live work and play.

Endorsements show respect, and confidence.  They trust I understand the issues, will do my homework, share my thoughts clearly and listen to others and only after this, then make the best decisions possible.

But in the end the most important endorsements come from the citizens of Wake County.

I hope you will check out my website and learn about the issues and my thoughts and share yours.  I hope to earn the most important endorsement any candidate can win, your vote in this election.
