Dear Friends, Im sorry that my schedule in Richmond keeps me from joining you this evening and delivering this message in person. Gary Byler and I have been good friends for many years. I know him to be a strong conservative and someone who cares deeply about his community and the Commonwealth. Gary is committed to finding solutions to improve life in Virginia and in the 85th district. I know, because thats what hes been doing as a lifelong resident and community leader here. In my first year as governor, I asked Gary to serve on the Christopher Newport University Board of Visitors, where he has provided leadership and charted a sustainable course for one of our finest public universities. Gary has the know-how to streamline government and make it work more efficiently. As a successful entrepreneur, he knows that we need jobs created in the private sector and hell listen to citizens and business owners alike to make sure our policies are fostering, not hindering, private-sector job growth. Gary is a man of substance and is ready to provide strong, conservative leadership in the General Assembly. He loves Virginia and truly wants to make sure that in Virginia, we have a true Commonwealth of opportunity. I encourage my friends in the 85th district to support Gary and to ask your family and friends to do the same.
