Moran Picks Up Hampton Roads Support
Former Del. Brian J. Moran (D-Alexandria) picked up the endorsements of the mayors of Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach in his campaign for the Democratic nomination for governor in 2009.
The mayors cited Moran's understanding of the diverse Hampton Roads area, his commitment to improving the region's struggling economy and his plans to invest in transportation and education.
"I know Brian Moran understands the needs of Hampton Roads," Norfolk Mayor Paul Fraim said. "His dedication to finding real transportation solutions has been impressive. But more than that, he's been a fighter for our Commonwealth for two decades."
Moran told the mayors this afternoon at an endorsement announcement that he will work to fight for the military and its families in Hampton Roads.
"Our area needs strong leadership that believes in regional cooperation, understands the importance of our military community, and is committed to growing our economy,'' Virginia Beach Mayor Meyera Oberndorf said. "Brian understands the problems facing Hampton Roads -- we need him in the Governor's office."
