State Senator Amanda Chase WILL BE at King William Tea Party September 12 to Speak on EDA Concerns!

It has been confirmed by reliable sources that State Senator Amanda Chase, in a tight race with a very liberal Democrat with the same first name (Amanda Pohl), WILL BE at the King William Tea Party on September 12 at 630pm. I am out of town on business or I’d try to be there (I joked at last night’s TP meeting that I might have to seek political asylum in King William if I come again to the KW TP meeting!) to hear this great senator.

Chase is speaking on a subject near and dear to my heart: Economic Development Authorities! She, like me, is an EDA skeptic.

Let’s remember what Amanda Chase did in 2014: Was Dave Brat’s general election transition campaign manager!

Amanda Chase, who was appointed to lead Brat’s general election effort less than a month ago, is being replaced by Virginia state Senate aide Phil Rapp.  Chase had once worked for Rep. Eric Cantor, whom Brat upset in the Virginia Republican primary on June 10.

“As a long-time friend, Amanda really stepped up and helped me when I needed her most — coming in as my transition campaign manager until we could put our full team together,” said the candidate in a statement. “I understand she needs to return to her business and other pursuits, and I will always be grateful for her service.”

Chase did more than that: She was a key pre-primary endorsement for Brat (wish I had kept the mailer for Brat with Chase’s endorsement – as a former Cantor political director – in a prominent place) and I thought it was key at the time!

So I want to encourage the Brat supporters in the area to get behind Senator Chase. Otherwise, the 11th District might end up with a senator endorsed by Emily’s List, People for the American Way’s PAC and NOW.

    Voters need to hear themselves what financial risks these EDA’s pose to their future taxes as the authority vested in these EDA’s allows them to go to the Bond markets to raise money often times comes back to haunt tax payers.

    If as we are learning in Warren County you manage to get appointed to one of these EDA Boards/Commissions you literally have the keys to the kingdom. I made mention yesterday the ease with which they steal this money.

    Grant money has replaced “earmarks” after the negative connotation associated with the term earmarks reached a fever pith back in the 80’s….but make no mistake grant money is essentially the same thing–a very bad practice.

    On Thursday September 12 the cloak gets pulled back. We are very appreciative that Senator Chase will share her keen insights and explain how these EDA’s are out of control

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