I support Pat Horton for Cabarrus County Commissioner. I have known Pat in a professional capacity for many years and know that she will work tirelessly to improve our community. Pat is a native of Cabarrus County and believes that a commissioner who know and understands the needs of the county will be an asset to each and every resident of the county.

Pat has worked in the financial industry for over 45 years and in that capacity has worked with a cross section of the county's residents. This experience will serve her well in dealing with all the citizens. In addition, Pat has in depth knowledge of women's issues. She understands the educational challenges facing a county with a fast growing school-aged population. As a lifelong resident she knows that safe housing for all is necessary for a healthy community.

When she is elected as a commissioner Pat will work well with the entire board to explore issues facing Cabarrus County in the years to come and will use all of her past experiences to improve the lives of each of us by exploring long range solutions and implementing those solutions which will make Cabarrus County the best place to call home.
