The race for the Republican nomination for supervisor in Fairfax’s Sully district has gotten a disproportionate amount of attention in the Virginia blogosphere. Part of that comes from the players involved and their relationships with the candidates – from bloggers helping one candidate’s day to day operations, to one candidate himself being a blogger, to Ben Tribbet of Not Larry Sabato fame running the show on the Democrat side (and stirring the pot on the Republican side), there’s plenty of opportunity for fodder and attention.
Through it all, Brian Schoeneman has shown through with the candidate and the campaign focused on the issues. Schoeneman has routinely shown an ability to rise above rhetoric and put forth policy positions that detail solutions to the problems Sully and Fairfax face.
Schoeneman has consistently shown a willingness and eagerness to engage in honest conversations about his positions and the needs of Sully’s families. These honest debates are the life blood of the political system and shows a maturity beyond the bumper sticker, Twitter communication strategy that drives too many campaigns these days.
Steve Albertson rightly cites the Buckley Rule when talking about the Sully race: vote for the most conservative candidate who can win against the Democrats.
Schoeneman has a plan to cut taxes, spur job creation, oppose pay increases for the Board of Supervisors, prioritize transportation spending to ease congestion, and he is absolutely rock solid when it comes to the Second Amendment and the right to life.
Brian Schoeneman is a great man and a great friend(even though he is an orioles fan) . Even those who have disagreements with him walk away with a level of respect and understanding that is hard to find in politics these days. He is the right man for the job of Sully Supervisor and I am honored to offer him my support and endorsement.
Vote Brian Schoeneman for Sully Supervisor on Saturday, April 25th.
