Don’t vote to ‘Detroit’ VirginiaPublished 8:05pm Tuesday, October 29, 2013
To the editor:
Please, fellow citizens — when you go to vote next week, don’t vote to “Detroit” Virginia.
The commonwealth is well run, often ranked first in the nation as a business friendly state. We do not need a Chicago-style politician, propped up by the Clintons, as our next governor.
We do not need a professional political fundraiser who has never held a public office to be our governor. We do not need a governor who is owned by and will be a pawn of outside interests. Virginia cannot afford a governor who needs on-the-job training.
Ken Cuccinelli is a true Virginian. He is a straight-arrow family man, who — when he served in the Senate — drove up I-95 from Richmond to Northern Virginia in the evenings to be home to help his wife with their children.
He possesses a sense of fair play and empathy, in addition to a giant intellect, which will serve him well as our governor.
Virginia cannot afford the embarrassment of a community organizer or an unprepared fundraiser as governor.
Remember when you go to the polls next week that elections have consequences.
