My Endorsement: Deeds's Tax Honesty

By washingtonpost.com editors

The Post is asking readers to make the case for their favored candidate in the Virginia governor’s race in 200 words or less.

By George Weber
Alexandria


Supports: R. Creigh Deeds
Party Identification: None
2005 Vote: Tim Kaine

I intend to vote for Sen. R. Creigh Deeds. Robert F. McDonnell appears to be against all tax increases, under all circumstances. I believe that this is unrealistic. If we want to spend more money on transportation and higher education, we may have to raise taxes.
Deeds takes this position, and I shall vote for him.

To submit your own endorsement, write to letters@washpost.com with “My Endorsement” in the subject line. Include your party affiliation, if any, as well as how you voted in Virginia’s last governor’s race. Finally, please include a day and evening phone number (not for publication) and a note disclosing any connection you have to Sen. R. Creigh Deeds or Robert F. McDonnell, their campaigns or the Democratic or Republican parties.
