By House Delegate Jim LeMunyon (R, VA-67)
Letter to Constituents
Yesterday, the General Assembly considered the Governor’s amendments to and vetoes of bills passed during the 2017 regular session, which ended in late February. The General Assembly will convene next in January 2018, after elections this coming November.
I’d like to thank the many people in the 67th district who have provided me with their ideas about how to improve transportation, education, opportunities for business expansion and job creation, and many other aspects of our quality of life. Thank you for sharing your time and ideas when I knocked on your door, or through phone calls, meetings ,and email messages. Please continue to do so.
You have made a difference. It turns out that with your ideas and suggestions, we’ve had more bills signed into law by Governor McAuliffe during the last two years, since the last election, than any other member of the Virginia House of Delegates: a total of 32 bills.
Every one of these bills passed with most Democrats and Republicans in the House of Delegates voting yes. Several of you even came to Richmond to advocate for certain bills. Thank you for doing so.
This isn’t politics as usual—it’s politics as it should be.
It’s easy to be discouraged about what we hear from Washington. It’s been that way for some time, but it doesn’t have to be that way. When the time comes to vote in November, I hope you’ll feel that I’ve done things differently. I’ll be on the ballot again this coming November, facing Democratic opposition—also politics as it should be.
And if you would like to help with my campaign this year, your support is welcome—regardless of your party affiliation. There are many ways to pitch in. To find out how, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Editor’s Note. Good work, Delegate LeMunyon. That’s quite a record in the current environment.
