To The Editor:

As the Chair of the UVA Culpeper Hospital Board of Trustees, I write to endorse the re-election of Senator Emmett Hanger.

Senator Hanger represents a sprawling area including parts of Culpeper County as a result of recent redistricting.  Ever since having our County included in his District he has been a regular visitor to our community, attending formal Chamber of Commerce sponsored events as well as other, less formal community activities.  He has always listened carefully to the concerns of his constituents and responded candidly regarding his positions on the issues of the day.  He welcomes his constituents to his Senate offices during Session and, again, listens and shares his views without guile or apology.  He is the consummate Virginia gentleman.

Senator Hanger has shown political courage in working across the aisle to address creative solutions to the serious healthcare concerns of his area constituents.  In this day of extreme partisanship, he has demonstrated the virtues of the citizen legislator.

I trust Emmett’s honest, conservative leadership will be recognized by his re-election.

Charles W. Crist
Culpeper, VA. 22701

The Primary is on Tuesday, June 9.
