As I pass through the halls of the Level 1 trauma center where I work, I see gaunt young men in wheelchairs with obvious health struggles; often, they are victims of gunshot wounds that brought an abrupt end to their gang-related lifestyles.
Robert F. McDonnell’s work as state attorney general to deal with this broad-impact community issue, including his efforts to keep vulnerable youth from joining “The Wrong Family” (the name of the award-winning documentary that his office made) and his work to support trauma centers is emblematic of his devotion to developing stable communities and families to build a strong and safe core for Virginia.
To submit your own endorsement, write to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

McDonnell, their campaigns or the Democratic or Republican parties.
