“I am proud and humbled to have been chosen as the nominee,” said Dave, “this campaign is about making sure that citizens of Southside Virginia get their ‘share of the pie’. As your delegate I will fight for education, small businesses and jobs, among other things. Richmond needs strong leaders that will stand up for Virginia’s families. That is why I was hurt when Richmond decided to block much needed unemployment funds. That decision was clearly a political move made by Republicans in the House of Delegates.”The 60th district covers Charlotte and Halifax counties, and parts of Nottoway and Prince Edward counties. This is an open seat, vacated by a retiring Clarke Hogan.
“I believe that as a community we must provide the best possible education for our children from Pre-K to College. This means better funding of schools, help for college and vocational training programs. We also need to invest in affordable access to healthcare for all Virginians. Job creation is another priority of mine and I believe that bringing jobs to this area will start with education and healthcare. At the same time we must support employers that are already here and encourage new ones to come,” said Dave Guill.
