Why should the voters elect you?

"For many years, I have been deeply committed to improving the quality of life of residents of western Fairfax County. I've had the opportunity to meet and work with many residents of the 40th District to resolve our issues and concerns. I will take that same level of dedication to Richmond as their delegate. I will fight for education and transportation dollars during difficult budget negotiations. I will oppose legislation that could harm the Occoquan watershed and support legislation requiring action on through-truck bans and giving local governing bodies greater control over growth."

What would you like the voters to know about you?

"Having been appointed to committees by both Democratic and Republican officials, my ability to work effectively in a bipartisan manner is one of my strengths."

I've also learned that the way to correct problems, advance society and look after your own welfare is to devote yourself to a higher cause than yourself and to stand by your principles without fail."

What would you like the voters to know about you?

"My father and mother loved their children and reared two principled sons. By their teaching and their example, they gave us the tools for life."

Joseph P. Oddo (I)

Age: 44

Residence: Centreville.

Education: Bachelor's degree, public policy, Penn State University; currently graduate student at University of Virginia's Falls Church campus.

Occupation: Self-employed Internet consultant; previously sales manager at Ted Britt Ford, Fairfax.

Elected offices/civic activities: "I have done precinct work for the Republican Party in the early 1990s and did canvassing/activist work for ACORN in the 1980s. My latest accomplishments that I am the most proud of are my two outstanding children. I am proud of the education my 5-year-old is getting from the home. He does go to public school, which I consider a supplement to his education. I also got great joy from being a foster parent to nine other children who needed a temporary home for a variety of circumstances."

Why should the voters elect you?

"Because as a concerned, hardworking taxpayer, I am disillusioned by the lack of representation we have by the two major political parties that are financed by 'big money' and corporations. It is time a citizen lawmaker goes to Richmond with the voters' agenda in hand. I am surveying the voters now to determine the issues most important to them. Topping the list is taxes. We can readjust the tax burden by placing higher tax on unhealthy things like cigarettes, alcohol and gasoline. That will allow us to reduce taxes on our personal property and state income taxes."

What would you like the voters to know about you?

"I have studied the public policy issues of this state for 18 years and am prepared to draft legislation to correct the imbalances that exist."

Timothy D. Hugo (R)

Age: 39

Residence: Clifton.

Education: BA, government, College of William and Mary; Kodak Fellowship, Senior Managers in Government Program at John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University.

Occupation: Technology government relations, executive director, CapNet.

Elected offices/civic activities: Lions Club; Rotary Club; board member, Telework Consortium; at-large member, Occoquan Watershed Coalition; past president, Sylvan Manor Homeowners Association; member, Commission on the Future of Transportation in Virginia.

Why should the voters elect you?

"With the state facing a serious budgetary challenge, I will work to secure our fair share of transportation and education funding. But I will not vote for tax increases. To lessen traffic congestion, I will strongly encourage telework. Education is a core function of state government. Thus, K-12 education funding should be exempt from possible budget cutbacks. I propose that Virginia's Constitution be amended to cap the growth in state government spending to a factor related to population and inflation increases. Monies collected above that amount should be available for education or transportation capital expenditures."

What would you like the voters to know about you?

"I have a long background in transportation and technology, two issues of critical importance to our growing economy in Fairfax County."
