What People Are Saying About Ryan Watts
“I raised my family in Chapel Hill, where I served as Mayor for three terms and also served on the Town Council. I grew up in Silk Hope in Chatham County and still own and manage my family farm there.
I’ve known Ryan and his family for a long time. Ryan is energetic, passionate, open-minded, and a listener. When we discussed his potential run for office, he shared with me his desire to address the needs of the people in the 6th District of North Carolina. I was thrilled to see him rising to the occasion to make a difference.
We are all tired of members of Congress who care more about themselves and their careers than their constituents. It’s time for the next generation of leaders to step up to continue our march towards progress and the betterment of all people. Let’s make some change in Washington. I wholeheartedly endorse Ryan Watts as the change that we need for this state and this country.”
– Hon. Rosemary Waldorf
Former Mayor of Chapel Hill
“I’m endorsing Ryan because he’s much less interested in people’s “D” or “R” status than he is in working together to find common-sense solutions to everyday problems. Ryan’s driving principle is simple – that government should work for the many and not the few. And while he has a deep understanding of policy and process, it’s Ryan’s optimism and idealism that earn my endorsement. Ryan believes that it’s still our government, and that we’ll be stronger not by tearing it down, but by working together to restore our trust in it.
Ryan knows that we can only get there when folks in Washington start responding to the needs of the people. And it’s because he understand those needs – because he understands the challenges of our changing world – that I want him to represent me in Congress. Ryan knows that the economy of the present and future depends on protecting resources, protecting workers, and protecting consumers, not eliminating those protections. Ryan knows that our economic security depends on increased access to affordable healthcare, not limiting access and burdening families with unmanageable medical bills. Ryan knows that only by investing in schools and job training programs will we create an economy that allows every able-bodied resident to provide for themselves and their family.
I hope you’ll join me in supporting Ryan Watts for Congress from the 6th District. I encourage you to visit wattsforcongress.com to learn more about him, or visit with him in person when he’s in your neighborhood. We’ve got a long way to go in restoring a government that reflects our values and interests, but I know we’ll take a big step in the right direction when we elect Ryan Watts this November.”
– Hon. Mike Dasher
Chatham County Commissioner, District 2
“I enthusiastically endorse Ryan Watts to be the Sixth District’s next Congressman. Ryan has impressed me – and people across the district – with his knowledge and his energy. He is a good listener and a real problem solver, skills he will use to make the Sixth District a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
