After reading the Dec. 21 Caroline Progress story about Chris Peace running in the 97th House District, Iâ€™m excited at the prospect of our county being represented by a leader who is in touch with our concerns. Chris and his wife Ashley already have strong roots in our community: his late mother Nina Peace was a judge here and his grandfather was a Commander at Fort AP Hill. As our next Delegate, Peace will hit the ground running, since heâ€™s already fought in the legislature for better retirement benefits for teachers, safer library computers for children, and lower taxes. Heâ€™s also a proud supporter of the 2nd Amendment and I know heâ€™ll protect our gun rights. As the Progress stated, â€œHe believes in healthy families,â€ and his work for our community proves it. For example, Peace is concerned about water quality in the county, protecting AP Hill, and safer roads. We in Caroline are excited to have a true friend who understands us.
