"Conservative Leadership for Virginia"

The title of this post is Emmett Hanger's slogan. At this point, the slogan is more of a theory than a reality.

Ten years ago Emmett Hanger chaired the task of finding a new Virginia state song- a task which he supposedly thought was very important. Now, ten years later, there is still no Virginia state song.

"Hanger provides leadership," you say? "Hanger will be placed on more committees and chair the finance committee so he can help us out more," you say? "Hanger is a leader," you say?

Hanger has been the 24th district's senator for 8 years. During that time the Valley has become one of the most prolific Meth manufacturing and distribution zones on the East Coast, while our state troopers remained under-manned and under-funded. I81 has become a traveler's nightmare, with major wrecks happening frequently and lives lost, while no transportation fixes have taken place. Illegal immigrant population has continued to rise and gang related violence has continued to increase, while no proactive measures have been taken to prevent or control these crisis.

How can we expect Hanger to take care of these problems when he cannot even provide a state song after a DECADE??? Where is the "LEADERSHIP" that people are talking about?

Leaders get things done, despite any difficulties. What has Hanger gotten done? Well, raise taxes, talk about raising more taxes, try to get illegal immigrants into our state colleges with in-state tuition benefits, try to give some convicted felons back their voting priviledges, make big-money friends in Richmond, and spend our state budget money like crazy.

If all that is negative, then Hanger's facts are negative, because those are the F.A.C.T.s

If you don't like them, well, that's your problem, 'cause you can't make facts go away... Even if you run an expensive advertising campaign to cover 'em up.

I would say it's time for a change in leadership ... and that's why I'm working to unseat Sen. Hanger.
