Listen to Virginia Senate Candidate (GOP-District 1) Mark Matney on the John Fredericks Show!

Here is the state senate candidate Mark Matney (Republican District 1) on the John Fredericks Show – he starts with an excellent reason why lawyers ought to be in the legislature.

Here is the link to YouTube and the Matney interview on Fredericks Show’s YouTube channel.

Mark Matney also explained how he expects to win as a serious underdog in this race, including an honest assessment of the internal poll rumor – there is discontent with the incumbent but Matney may not have moved the needle toward him yet.

Mark calls for opportunity for all – not just a mindless increase in the minimum wage – but rather substantive jobs that pay better.  He finally had a wonderful summing up why people should vote for him.  If you live in the First District of Virginia – or are nearby – please help Mark.  Here’s his website and here’s his FB page.  I am helping Mark already through this blog!

    Lawyers in the legislature???? The congress and U.S. Senate are filled with lawyers and how is that working out? We need people with common sense and a true desire to make our communities better. Being a lawyer does not automatically make you far more fit to serve.

    • The truth of the matter is that there were not even enough lawyers in the General Assembly to fill the House and Senate Courts of Justice Committees. I doubt there are enough now. I do agree that the legislature of old might have had too many lawyers and sometimes lawyers write laws to favor them or their clients but there are not too many lawyers today. The huge omnibus bills in Congress cannot happen (Thank the Lord) due to the state constitutional provision that requires each bill to have one subject and must state its subject in the title. Thanks for coming by again, Daryl.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
