Both candidates who willingly threw their names into the hat for Virginia’s 33rd House of Delegates District race deserve accolades for their bravery! I have a lot of respect for the hard work and dedication it must take, and we should commend them for their service.
With that being said, I still have to choose a candidate to vote for in November. I believe Dave LaRock rather than Mary Daniel is the best choice to serve our commonwealth. I have never met Daniel and have only met LaRock a handful of times at events he has participated in around Berryville.
Dave isn’t a career politician, nor does he have a desire to be. He wasn’t handpicked by his party and given instructions about what type of campaign he should run. I have yet to see any real ideas come from Daniel’s campaign, but knowing she is a Democrat tells me where she stands on the issues. Dave has laid out the best plan for lowering taxes, spending wisely, and keeping Virginia a business friendly state. He deserves a shot at taking his ideas to Richmond to work with other politicians to help Virginia families prosper in the future!
