Samantha Sedivy: ‘I am a Republican’

I am sick and tired of being mischaracterized as a Republican because of the reprehensible actions of individuals masquerading as voices of the Republican Party. My fellow Republicans need to find their own voices and show the greater public that we are more than the foolishness constantly being promulgated in the media.

I am a Republican. I believe in pluralism, freedom, democracy, and individual rights. I believe in respecting and upholding our Constitution. I care for the well-being of all of my neighbors, my community, my state, and my country. I am not afraid of considering the opinions of others, especially when they do not agree with me.

Most importantly, I strive to treat all others as I would hope to be treated: with respect.

Please do not mistake me as something that I am not because of the actions others.

Other appointments from the Governor to Virginia’s college and university Boards of Visitors and higher education boards are:
