Happy New Year Virginia!
There is an election every year in the Commonwealth of Virginia. With all the races we can hardly call 2015 an off-year. We have every seat in the General Assembly up and here in Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William counties we have every seat on the Board of Supervisors, School Board, and the Constitutional offices as well to work. There is little time to rest for grassroots politicos so enjoy the winter while it lasts. The majority in the state senate will be a target for both parties as one miss-step here or there could swing the pendulum either way.
In Northern Virginia we’ll need all hands on deck to help re-elect Senator Dick Black. Another race that deserves attention is Delegate David Ramadan’s re-election. Both races will be tough to win even though both men have served the commonwealth well and deserve to be returned to their seats. Let’s hope voters see the wisdom behind returning these fine stewards of the public trust to the public office where they have worked so hard.
