JACKSONVILLE, NC – Jason R. Thigpen, candidate for the U.S. House in NC’s 3rd District, offered his most sincere appreciation to U.S. Congressman Mike McIntyre for his 18-years of dedication and service to the people of Eastern North Carolina.
“Congressman McIntyre has been a powerful and effective advocate for the people of Eastern North Carolina. As a veteran I can testify to the fact that he has been a genuine friend and avid supporter of our military service members, veterans, and their families. I know personally the struggles military members face returning home from the battlefield. I can candidly say that I am not sure where I and my brothers- and sisters-in-arms here in North Carolina would be if it were not for the efforts Congressman McIntyre. The Congressman’s support and efforts on my behalf and my military colleagues helped me to realize that my true passion is in following his example in service to our communities. Congressman McIntyre certainly leaves behind some big shoes to fill, but I am very happy for him and his family, as I wish them the very best in what the future holds for them”, said Thigpen.
