My Endorsement: The Best Choice for Virginia

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 Tom Greeson
Reston

Supports: R. Creigh Deeds
Party Identification: Democrat
2005 Vote: Timothy M. Kaine

My wish is that by Nov. 3, every Virginia voter will have come to know the good, decent and authentic person that R. Creigh Deeds is. His roots in rural Virginia have given him an understanding of the value and the enrichment that education can offer. His background also gives him an understanding of the need to create opportunity for residents across the state. His work ethic has brought him to Northern Virginia many times and has instilled within him a genuine understanding of the region’s needs.

Deeds is the best choice to lead Virginia as its next governor on the critical issues of transportation, the economy and jobs, education, the environment and energy. He will work night and day during his four years as a true steward of the commonwealth.

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 Finally, please include a day and evening phone number (not for publication) and a note disclosing any connection you have to Sen.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.
