Sen. Emmett Hanger

A letter to the editor in support of Senator Emmett Hanger (R-24th Senate District):

Editor:

I am currently a retired state employee.  During my many years of employment at various state agencies, I have had the opportunity to observe and work directly with Senator Emmett Hanger. He has represented his constituents with integrity, honesty and intelligence.  His review and decisions regarding legislation are not limited by party affiliations or influenced by other legislators.  Because of his experience and reputation, he is respected by members of the General Assembly and is able to work with them to bring about compromise when faced with difficult issues.

LTE: Emmett Hanger demonstrates honest, conservative leadership

Sen. Emmett Hanger

By Lynn R. Mitchell

Senator Emmett Hanger (R-24th Senate District) sits on a number of boards and committees throughout Virginia, working with community leaders about a variety of issues. This letter highlights that work:

June 1, 2015

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.

LTE: Hanger makes government work better for us

Emmett Hanger 1By Lynn R. Mitchell

More support for Senator Emmett Hanger:

Editor

I’m not political but I do want my family to continue enjoying what makes this area special; family values, strong schools, low taxes, and economic development driving good jobs.

Elections seem to be a lot of the same thing, tearing down your opponent. Emmett doesn’t do that. He runs on his record; a good, conservative record.

Emmett’s working hard to make our government work better for us.

He’s approachable and speaks to his record. I don’t have all the details legislators do when they cast votes, but I am confident Emmett does and he makes the best decision representing my interests. That’s why I support him.

Emmett has earned a lot of leadership positions; you only do that over time and by understanding issues. New guys start at the bottom and that is not good for us.

We have strong, conservative, honest leadership with Emmett Hanger. Vote June 9.
