The race for Virginia's 5th Congressional District heated up this week as my opponent took direct aim at my military service and questioned my committment to our veterans. Not only does she lack a track record of military service herself, she displayed her ignorance on the work my colleagues and I have done in the Virginia Assembly to improve healthcare quality for our veterans, among other things.
It is not surprising that she wanted to change the conversation after a recent
came out showing increasing unemployment and an ever-rising cost of living in Albemarle County under her watch as Chairman of the Board of Supervisors.
This Wednesday, the Senior Center in Charlottesville (
1180 Pepsi Place, Charlottesville 22901) will host the first general election debate between Ms. Dittmar and myself at 1:30 PM. I am excited to use this platform as an opportunity to offer real solutions and not just the empty rhetoric that my opponent is offering to hide her failures.
