My Endorsement: Deeds's Tax Honesty
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
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.
