Lt. Colonel Billy Clayton Endorsement

It is a distinct honor and privilege to announce that a retired Deputy Commander of the N.C. State Highway Patrol, Billy Clayton, is supporting my candidacy for District Attorney. Lt. Colonel Clayton was first sworn in as a State Trooper in 1990, and his first duty assignment was Alamance County. 28 years later, he and his family still call our county home.
Beginning in 1996, when I first began interning in the Alamance County District Attorney's office, I frequently did ride-alongs with Billy and many local officers in order to learn more about their responsibilities and how I could more effectively prosecute their cases. My work with the Highway Patrol didn't end when I left traffic court for Superior Court. In 2000, Lt. Col. Clayton was the lead investigator in a Second Degree Murder case assigned to me, and he witnessed firsthand my Trial Advocacy skills in a serious jury trial.
After rising through the Patrol ranks, Lt. Col. Clayton was appointed Deputy Commander of the Highway Patrol by Governor Pat McCrory (pictured below with Lt. Col. Clayton). He ran all field operations for the Patrol, overseeing 2,400 sworn and civilian personnel, and was responsible for a budget of 220 to 240 million dollars. Having the support of a leader who exercised a statewide level of supervision is gratifying because it reflects his confidence in my ability to lead our D.A.'s office and make Alamance County safe again. Thank you, Lt. Colonel Clayton, for your service to the State of North Carolina and for your support!
