Letter: Katy Wheeler, South Riding

Editor: Let’s get back to good governance and end one party rule in Virginia with this fantastic line up:

Glenn Youngkin, candidate for governor is a homegrown Virginian who spent the last 30 years supporting his family, his church and building a successful business. He was raised in a middle-class family, was awarded a college scholarship, and has engineering and business degrees. He supports the police and has the endorsement of the Virginia Law Enforcement Sheriff’s Organization. He supports eliminating burdensome taxes such as taxes on food and gasoline. Youngkin vows to make Virginia the best job market, create the best schools and the safest communities in America. 

Lt. Governor Candidate Winsome Sears has an amazing résumé. She built a successful business and is a trained electrician. She served in the Marines and was a member of the Committee on Women Veterans while serving as the first Black Republican woman elected to the Virginia General Assembly. She was co-chair of the African American Advisory Committee to the US Census Bureau and former VP of the Virginia Board of Elections. 

Jason Miyares, who is running for Attorney General has a unique perspective; his mother fled Communist Cuba for the U.S. in 1965. Miyares was the first Cuban American to win a seat in the House of Delegates and is a former prosecutor. He was assistant Attorney General in Virginia Beach and worked to keep the streets safe from violent criminals. He served on the Virginia Board of Veterans and was noted as Legislator of the year in 2018-19 by the College of Affordability and Public Trust and the Military Officers Association. He has the support of the Virginia Police Benevolent Association. 

This is a trifecta I will be supporting at the ballot box. I hope you will, too.

    The Democratic candidates would do so much more for all Virginians. Please remember there’s a Democrat in the White House. Can you imagine Glenn Youngkin working effectively with Joe Biden? All Mr. Youngkin does is bash Democrats. He told Tucker Carlson that Democrats “are on the wrong side of every issue.” He had the gall to say Democrats “want to teach [children] critical race theory.” He’s labeled Mr. McAuliffe “pro-abortion,” as if Mr. McAuliffe thinks abortion is a positive thing to do. Enough of the lies Mr. Youngkin. If your nose grows any bigger, you’ll be giving Pinocchio a run for his money.

      You’re suggesting that Virginians vote for local candidates based on who’s in the White House?

      Am I reading that correctly?

      American voters regret voting for Biden (D). His numbers are atrocious. His policies are even worse.

      But you think that’s an important factor for local office.

      Eesh. Virginia need a change.

    Sears? Really? Youngkin plays footsie with Trump lies but Sears is all in. She publicly backed Texas’s draconian antiabortion law, then fired most of her campaign staff. Posed with assault weapons in her campaign ads. Give me a break. Let’s keep Virginia moving forward!

      Love hating on a immigrant woman. That must be who the lefties fear most.

      Democrats had their golden opportunity to put their money where their mouth is, by nominating not one, but two experienced women. Instead, they kicked them to the ditch and went with the same old crusty retreads from the DC Establishment. So very ‘progressive…’
