I figured it's about time I give everyone an update.
Deadline to register is approaching fast: October 15th. Please make sure your friends are registered.
On the ballot you see 5 elections, and only 2 that seem to have "choices":
- Senate of Virginia. April Moore is running against incumbent Mark Obenshain. April is the clear Climate activist in this race. She also has supported expanding medicare, which Obenshain opposed.
- House of Delegates. Brent Finnegan is running against incumbent Tony Wilt for the second time. Brent is a community activist, and has time for a lot of the community activities, and on the right side of all the issues I know of. Brent is running his campaign on small dollar donations, which means that Tony Wilt is out-raising him by large amounts, but it also means that Brent's campaign is NOT bought.
If it it's not already clear, my endorsements are April Moore, and Brent Finnegan.
If you have the time to help them "Get Out the Vote" I would strongly encourage you to help. You can find ways to get connected on their websites, and small dollar amounts you can give will always be appreciated.
I would love to talk to you more about this, if you have concerns about giving to politicians, but I also know that each person should only commit in the ways that they can.
