The VFRW congratulates its 2017 Republican Ticket:

Ed Gillespie for Governor, Jill Vogel for Lt. Governor and John Adams for Attorney General.

Kathy shares some thoughts

Speaking at the Lake of the Woods Republican Women’s Club recently, Kathy made the following points with Club members.  Northam is part of the McAuliffe Administration which gave Virginia a 6/10th of 1% economic growth rate -- the lowest on the Eastern seaboard.  We now rank 39th of the 50 states.  The McAuliffe administration presided over enormous out-migration from Virginia as retirees, the elderly, military and veterans, and students migrated out of the Commonwealth.  We have been an in-migration state under previous administrations.  Further, Northam is part of the administration that is bragging about holding the record for vetoing the most legislation.  Many believe Northam is probably the most liberal candidate in Virginia’s history.  As we know, Ed is ready to govern from Day One, he’s focused on lower taxes and tax rates, he’s determined to eliminate 2 regulations for every new 1 put into effect, he supports the 2nd Amendment, pro-life issues, and Virginia’s history.

Ed Gillespie for Governor

WHAT makes ED a great candidate?  READ HERE what the NFRW writes –

  • Ed Gillespie will bring a strong work ethic to the Governor's Office.  Ed has lived the American Dream.  His father was brought to America by Ed's grandfather, who worked as a janitor.  Ed's parents owned a small grocery store where Ed worked as a boy.  A hard worker, Ed worked his way through college by holding many jobs - including that of an attendant in the U.S Senate parking lot.  Ed eventually became Counselor to a United States President. 
  • Ed Gillespie will offer all Virginians the opportunity to be successful and productive citizens.  Ed is running a serious, policy-driven campaign with substantive proposals to help Virginians succeed.  Among Ed's many program ideas are: tax cuts; accountability for all elected officials; removing barriers to job creation; providing more career opportunities for veterans; and improvements to Virginia's education and mental health systems.  
  • Ed Gillespie is a principled conservative.  Ed's policies and programs are in line with the tenets of the Constitution of the United States.  They are designed to protect individual liberties and promote limited government.  Ed is a result-driven leader, dedicated to getting Virginia's economy growing again.  
  • Ed Gillespie will work with the current majority of Republican Governors in the United States.  The current governor of Virginia as well as Ed's opponent are out of step with the governing principles of the 34 current Republican governors in the United States.  Virginia needs to join the ranks of Republican governors and bring sound conservative governing principles back to the Commonwealth.

  • Ed Discusses Broadband as Critical Infrastructure: The challenge for Virginia’s next governor will be to expand broadband to areas that do not have access and increase speeds in areas that do have access.  In the 21st century, Virginians must have access to broadband.  Ed will not just plan and evaluate the current state of connectivity in Virginia, but act to prioritize and fund broadband deployment throughout the Commonwealth.  Ed’s 5-point action plan includes financing, taking responsibility, lessening the regulatory burden, local and regional partnerships, and providing transparency/accountability/Urgency.

  • Ed on Higher Education: On Thursday, September 7, Ed visited Virginia Tech. While there he outlined his plan for higher education saying that in his term as Governor, Virginia would become the opportunity capital of the nation. Read his remarks here. 

  • Over the last several months, Ed has hosted roundtable discussions and criminal justice listening sessions across the Commonwealth. Today’s roundtable discussion was held at Ronn Cutts Barber Shop in Downtown Richmond. In June, Ed participated in a barbershop talk about the opioid epidemic at the same small business.  Topics from medical marijuana to prisoner re-entry are covered here. 

  • Ed and the criminal justice system: Virginia’s criminal justice system should be just, fair, and redeeming. Law enforcement and justice should be administered fairly, and when Virginians exit the criminal justice system they should leave more prepared to live a full and contributing life in society. Ed’s criminal justice policy is the culmination of several months of roundtable discussions and criminal justice listening sessions he’s held across the Commonwealth. Click here for all the details. 

  • Gillespie v Northam: This is a clear, well organized, quick to read chart.  Great tool for conversations with friends and colleagues who still need convincing to vote for Ed. Click Here. 


Jill Vogel for Lt. Governor

Jill is a mother, an ethics lawyer, and a State Senator.  Jill’s record is clear -- she puts principle before party.  The Working for Virginia page of her website is devoted to Jill’s views on specific areas of life in Virginia: growing the economy, restoring trust in government, and defending the 2nd amendment are just three examples.  Be sure to visit Jill’s website for campaign updates.

John Adams for Attorney General

Seven Questions Answered by John Adams.

In a summer edition of Style Weekly, Claire Guthrie Gastanaga, executive director of the Virginia ACLU, proposed seven questions that Virginia voters should consider when deciding which attorney general candidate they would support. When I saw these questions I felt compelled to answer, as she is correct that these are important questions that voters in Richmond and across Virginia should have answered. Below are my thoughts on each question posed.

John Adams' Statewide Substance Abuse and Overdose Crisis Policy Proposal.

The Attorney General, working closely with law enforcement to prosecute enforcement actions in a range of areas impacting our citizens, has a critical leadership position in fighting the drug overdose crisis in our communities.
