Del. Kathy J. Byron, who represents the 22nd District including part of Campbell County, this week announced her candidacy for an eighth term in the Virginia House of Delegates.
Having already secured the Republican nomination, Byron's name will appear on the ballot in the Nov. 8 election.
"It has been an honor to serve the people of the 22nd District, and I am asking for their continued support as I continue my work on workforce development, job creation, business growth and standing up for our values in Richmond," Byron said in an emailed press release. "Considering the seniority I have earned in the House since my first election in 1997, I am now ideally positioned to deliver positive results and effective representation for the people of Bedford, Campbell, Franklin and Lynchburg.
She is a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council and serves on the organization's Telecommunications Task Force."
This is where it starts folks -
when ALEC members come up for re-election
you have to do everything you can
to make sure they are defeated.
It does not matter what her record is -
It matters that Byron has chosen to be part of a conservative organization that distributes legislation that hurts the general public and promotes legislation for their corporate members.
Byron is an ACTIVE member of ALEC - including serving on a Task Force
Byron knows ALEC's philosophy and what ALEC does.
Byron chooses to maintain a membership with ALEC and represent corporate interests.
Choices have consequences - Byron must not be re-elected.
