Wil­son-Smith wor­thy of re­elec­tion in Peters­burg

The Progress-Index - - OPINION -

I was born and reared in Peters­burg, Vir­ginia. I grad­u­ated from Pe­abody High School, went into the Air Force and to col­lege and now work as an at­tor­ney with my own law firm in Lake Ridge, Vir­ginia.

No mat­ter how far I go in life, my home­town is al­ways near and dear to me. I still have fam­ily in Peters­burg with whom I visit and I at­tend sev­eral com­mu­nity events and fam­ily gath­er­ings. I sup­port char­i­ta­ble ac­tiv­i­ties in the City.

I am writ­ing to tell you of a very spe­cial City Coun­cil mem­ber who sends me emails at least once a week and some­times more; keep­ing me abreast of the many is­sues and events oc­cur­ring in my beloved home­town. Some may see those emails as not so im­por­tant but to me they mean the world. It is com­mend­able that you have a coun­cil woman who is will­ing to take time from her busy day to in­form her con­stituents of is­sues in Peters­burg but also oth­ers like me who are far re­moved.

Treska Wil­son-Smith is that di­a­mond. She is EN­GAGED with a cap­i­tal E. I have found her al­ways will­ing to reach out far and be­yond to keep cit­i­zens in­volved. Were it not for her sin­cere de­sire to im­prove the lot of cit­i­zens, to keep them en­gaged and in­formed, I would have missed many op­por­tu­ni­ties to sup­port my City. She brings a needed vi­tal­ity to the City and is a per­son wor­thy of the cit­i­zens re-elect­ing. I cer­tain hope and pray that the cit­i­zens of our great city rec­og­nize her tal­ents and value by re-elect­ing her! Em­mett F. Robin­son, Esq. Prince William County, VA
