Next January, a new President and a new Congress will be sworn into office. Over the last several years, the lack of cooperation between the President and the Congress has led to gridlock, with nothing getting done.
Whoever we elect to represent the 10th Congressional District must be able to help move Congress forward and take the necessary steps to make our government function again. Congress is facing issues, such as repair of the nation’s infrastructure, that are going to require bipartisan cooperation to resolve. What we need is fewer partisan warriors and more collaboration.
Our current Congressman, Barbara Comstock, is a well-known partisan, who walks in lock step with the Republican hierarchy. We cannot count on her to take any actions that might endanger her place in the party’s firmament.
We need a pragmatic newcomer. LuAnn Bennett has lived and worked in Northern Virginia for three decades. She understands our community’s values and priorities. She doesn’t think of compromise as a sign of weakness. We need LuAnn Bennett!
