Letter: Madeline Murphy, Aldie

Editor: As a member of the community it is important to me to know that my family, my home, and my community are safe and protected. 

Public safety is key for making sure our community can thrive, and that starts with making sure that we have high quality law enforcement to keep us safe. To attract and keep the best law enforcement officials, we need to pay them a living wage. That’s why in Richmond, our Delegate Wendy Gooditis voted to give our state police a pay raise. This will allow us to support our officers and make sure that we’re not losing the best talent to other states.

Wendy’s first priority is keeping our children and families safe. She knows that keeping our state police and sheriff’s departments fully funded allows them to protect our community, and to implement common sense measures like body cameras, and invest in anti-bias training to keep all of our citizens safer.

I support a community that is safe and welcoming for all of us. That means investing resources into making sure our police departments are staffed with high-quality, well-trained officers. I’m proud to be voting to reelect Wendy Gooditis this November.

Madeline Murphy, Aldie

    Clearly, Wendy Gooditis isn’t anti-police. Her voting record shows she fully supports the Virginia State Police & other law-enforcement agencies. I also like that she advocates for antibias training. It’s always worth a try to get public employees to act in a courteous & equitable manner. For me, Wendy Gooditis is the candidate to support. Please vote Loudoun!

      You forgot to mention she is a Democrat which is the prime reason you would vote for her along with the rest of the ticket.

    In reality, Gooditis voted to end qualified immunity for law enforcement officers. She voted for every anti-law enforcement bill that came on the floor.

    Wendy also voted to end the reporting by school systems of sexual assault, and other violent crimes to the VDE.

    Despite the misinformation of the writer, Wendy Gooditis is a radical leftist. Her votes are dangerous to our families and homes.

    She voted to end the death penalty.

    She voted to give voting rights to those on parole.

    She voted to repeal the “gay panic” defense.

    She voted to allow for the expungement of criminal records.

    She voted to prohibit institutions of higher learning to ask about criminal records.

    She voted to create gun free zones on school board property.

    She voted to allow the State Department to have more time for weapons background checks.

    Voted to increase possession of certain weapons a class 5 felony.

    Voted to prohibit a firearm with 40 feet of a polling place.

    She voted to prohibit no knock warrants.

    She voted yes on EVERY Demoncrat proposed policies. I wouldn’t say she is pro-law enforcement by any means.

    I read more of the Letters to the Editor here and it does like the Gooditis campaign specifically has been flooding this news medium with their copy/paste letters, which are political ads. It’s quite dishonest of people like Murphy to participate in this. If you want to spam us readers to try to vote like you, fine, but at least use your own words!

    One more thing – regarding the actual content of the template Murphy simply copy/pasted here: If she and other Democrat campaigners actually cared about the safety of their families, they’d be spending their time campaigning for Loudoun’s elected officials and Richmond enablers to be held accountable by gross negligence that has led to sexual assault against multiple girls in our schools! But we haven’t heard any ounce of outrage from them. It seems like the truth is they are willing to sacrifice their kids – and ours! – to be able to advance their radical leftist culture-shifting agenda.
