Allen needs to be district attorney
Monday, April 16, 2018
This is a very important election season for the residents of Pitt County. One of the most important races that we will have will be in the office of District Attorney.
Much has been said about the situation at the courthouse, and especially in the District Attorney's office. Of the candidates that have filed for this office the clear choice is Lee Allen.
Lee was born and raised in this county, went to school here, served the country in the military, and served as both a prosecutor and private attorney. I have always found Lee to be knowledgeable of the law, and to be upfront with his opinions and findings.
Lee and his wife have raised some of the finest children I have had the privilege to teach in my 18 years of teaching; they will be leaders like him. Lee is very capable of straightening out the mess in the District Attorney's office and restoring order in the courthouse.
We live in a time where it is more important than ever to have a firm hand over our courts and to deal with our cases in a speedy and effective way. Lee will see to it that this is done and will see that justice is served.
He knows our young people are our future, and if we don't put dangerous, non-law-abiding people behind bars, that their future is grim.
Lee also has a compassionate side for the one who may have slipped up and made a mistake, but he will never allow that to void the consequences for what they did.
I refer to this as "Compassion with Consequences," but that person will know not to appear in court again before Lee or his staff. Join me in electing Lee Allen for district attorney of Pitt County.
