“I know that solving problems requires a game plan, a serious and bold strategy to take on the challenges facing all Virginians.”
– Glenn Younkin, 74th Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia
We have a game plan. Governor Youngkin can’t implement the rest of his serious and bold strategy to ensure the people of Virginia have individual liberty, equal justice, rights, and opportunities until we retain control of the House of Delegates and retake the State Senate. Our game plan is to get our candidates: Lee Peters, Paul Milde, Jim Tully, Tara Durant, and Nikki Baldwin to victory. These are the most important elections in Virginia for control in Richmond next year. We win here in Stafford, or we lose in Richmond.
We have a game plan for Stafford County, as well. We want to protect parental rights, ensure fiscal responsibility, and ensure Stafford is a great place to live. Our game plan is to re-elect Crystal Vanuch, and elect Deuntay Diggs, and Jennifer Harper to the Board of Supervisors, and re-elect Susan Randall and Patricia Healy, and elect Mary Rupert to the School Board. These elections drive control of the policies that Stafford County will have for our children, for our school system, for our county tax rates, for zoning, and for so much more. We win these elections in Stafford, or we risk losing everything that Stafford is.
We have one more piece to our game plan – our Constitutional Officers. Democrats have been so impressed with the work our five Republican incumbents have done that they didn’t even field opponents in four of these elections. But that doesn’t mean we can take these lightly. Every vote counts every time. We need to ensure that Scott Mayausky defeats his opponent, and we need to re-elect David Decatur, Eric Olsen, and Kathy Sterne, and elect Mike Sienkowski. These positions are critical for the functioning of the county, and we must ensure that our trustworthy and capable nominees get across that finish line.
The Democrats have a game plan, too. We all know what it is. We’ve all seen their strategies: raise local taxes 40%, mask kids, send $10 million of Stafford’s money to Hampton Roads, treat victims like criminals and criminals like victims. We’ve seen what they’ve done to Loudoun County. We can’t let that happen here. We can’t let that happen to the Commonwealth. We can’t let that happen to Stafford.
We stand where it counts. These elections matter. Each vote matters. You matter. And what you choose to do now, and over the next 35 days, will make the difference. Keep fighting. Stand up for Stafford. Stand up for Virginia.
We will hold our next official meeting on Monday, October 9 at 7PM at the Falmouth Fire Station – 250 Butler Rd. The full call is below.
