2009 Virginia Free Candidate’s Questionnaire

What People are saying:

The News and Advance said, “Scott Garrett ought to drop this line of attack. Saying Valentine has a ‘plan’ to raise taxes is just not true.”

Clayton Roberts, President of the pro-business group VA Free said, “The Virginia FREE candidate questionnaire, and Delegate Valentine’s positions on that questionnaire, apparently are being misrepresented by her opponent.  The questionnaire DOES NOT ASK candidates whether they would support tax increases for transportation. To assert otherwise is deliberately misleading. The questionnaire seeks to establish a starting point for continuing the dialogue with state leaders on issues that are important to business and job creation in Virginia.  It is unfortunate that Delegate Valentine’s opponent did not even bother to answer the questionnaire.

Charlie Pryor, business executive and energy consultant said, “I believe in sound, conservative principles, and I support Shannon Valentine because Shannon is good for business.”
