I have known Steve Rao for a number of years and can vouch that he is one of the most dedicated individuals I have ever come across. In my role as former Attorney General and Secretary of State of North Carolina, I am asked on many occasions to endorse many officials and in almost every case I decline. In Steve’s case I make an exception because he will make one of the finest public servants for Morrisville.

I am delighted to support Steve Rao for Town Council in Morrisville. I have known Steve several years through his active participation at Morrisville Chamber events and a number of business activities. Steve has shown great leadership capabilities and will be fair in representing a very diverse group in Morrisville.
This is a very important election for Morrisville where the choice for Town Council will be significant in electing a Town Council that will move the Town forward with economic development and enhance the quality of life for all of its residents. I believe that Steve is a great candidate for Morrisville who can and will do the things needed for everyone that he re presents because of his business background.
