Can we afford Gerry Connolly?
Mark Warner opposes it. Even Brian Moran opposes it. Yet Gerry Connolly, knowing full well his constituents spend countless hours in traffic, fully supports raising the gas tax at a time when working families are facing tough choices due to rising prices.
From the Great Falls Connection, July 2007:
Fairfax County Board of Supervisors chairman Gerald Connolly pushed for the tax package, even though he would have preferred an increase in the gas tax, a measure that was rejected by the Virginia General Assembly several times.
From the Mt. Vernon Gazette, July 2008:
Connolly said he is in favor of the Virginia Senate Democrats’ plan, which includes a six-cent increase in the gas tax over six years.
Compare that to Keith Fimian’s position on energy:
Our long term solutions must include a sensible combination of increased domestic energy production from natural gas, clean-burning coal, wind and solar power, as well as advanced nuclear energy.
The choice could not be clearer. Keith Fimian will fight for energy independence and long-term solutions to lower gas prices and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Gerry Connolly will fight to raise the gas tax, over the objections of even members of his own party, to make you pay more at the pump.
