Why should voters elect you? "As a businessman and lifelong Virginia Democrat, I will bring real change and responsible government to Washington, creating a better future for Virginia's families."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction? "Washington is broken. Thanks to the leadership in Washington, many Virginians are being denied the opportunity to live the American dream. We should be investing in our future: balancing the budget, improving education, providing affordable health care and breaking our addiction to foreign oil. Instead, George Bush and his allies have run up enormous budget deficits, handed out tax breaks to oil companies while gas prices soar, bogged us down in Iraq with no exit strategy, and advocated policies that benefit the wealthy few by squeezing middle-class families. Virginians deserve real change in Washington that creates opportunity for everyone."
