‘Dear Glenn.’ An Open Letter to Glenn Davis

Dear Glenn,

Thank you!

For the past year you traveled the Commonwealth and shared your generosity with those around you.

You shared your ready availability and willingness to talk with prospective supporters …

… as well as your policy, leadership, and business sense with a plan and an eye to the future.

For all that and so much more, thank you.

And thank you for your gracious concession and call for party unity. You, Sir, are a class act.

Rest up because we’re going to need your pragmatic common sense somewhere down the political road. Take Chelle on a long vacation. Sleep past 4:00 am.

And when you’re in my part of the Valley please be sure to stop by so we can again break bread together and talk about life, politics, and the world around us.

This door may have closed … but somewhere there’s a window waiting for you to dive through it! The best, as they say, is yet to come….

Best,

~Lynn Mitchell

“The Governor vetoed taxpayers once again by vetoing HB1753, which stops local governments from demanding union-level expenses from contractors. That drives up the costs of local projects and local taxpayers pay the price,” said Davis, who labor unions have always seen as a threat. In fact, labor unions have given over twice what the House Democratic Caucus has given to his liberal opponents since 2013 to try to defeat Davis, who has consistently prevailed.

“When government demands private companies pay union wages, you’re on your way to being a union state,” added Davis. “No wonder Virginia’s falling behind among the best states for business. We need to lower the cost of doing business and stop government from imposing greater costs.”

Virginia’s current Lt. Governor, Ralph Northam, also voted against this bill in the Senate in an effort to prevent its passage.
