Now the race gets going

Western Tidewater residents made their choices clearly known on Tuesday regarding who they think will best represent the 64th House of Delegates District. The Republicans favored Emily Brewer, and the Democrats put their faith in Rebecca Colaw. Incidentally, both women are from Suffolk.

For their unsuccessful opponents, we can only offer condolences here, and suggest that they continue to be involved in their respective communities, especially if they ever wish to consider trying again for office.

We wish the respective two candidates luck and the endurance to get through the next several months as each increases the intensity of their respective campaigns.

We also hope is that they’ll continue to pay close attention to what people are saying is needed to bolster economic development, transportation and other important aspects of life in the 64th. Then the person who is elected can go into office with a clear and strong plan to serve the district.
