Like many of you reading this editorial, I am so very happy to support Pat Horton for County Commissioner. In the words of my late husband, Sam Leder, “Pat is a dynamo!”

For years and years, Pat has consistently and happily volunteered with countless charities and fund-raisers, and served on the boards of multiple organizations. Sam and I were lucky enough to watch her in action when she helped co-chair and/or volunteer with the Healing Threads hospital fundraiser, various Boy Scout events, Habitat for Humanity and Red Cross fundraisers.

Pat has helped many folks throughout the county (maybe even you or someone you know) achieve personal and financial success. Her dedication to her business and individual bank clients is on a level very few business leaders attain. Her community involvement and high degree of professionalism has given her an up-close view to much of Cabarrus County's growth. Her astute business sense will be very applicable to her new role as County Commissioner.

Please join me in telling all your family, friends and acquaintances they can vote with confidence for Pat Horton for county commissioner.

Shannon Leder
