I look forward to this. The Republicans have been harming transportation in VA since George Allen.

Outstanding forum tonight! The questions were very tough, and the three candidate did a wonderful job of convincing me at least, that they will represent my concerns very well!
Thank you Lowell, for the forum, and for recruiting such high quality candidates. Finally the Shenandoah Valley stand a chance of actually being represented in Richmond!

All three spoke very well and were knowledgeable on the subject. Interesting that one lady present had a "Lohr" sticker on her car.
I was struck by how a group of Democrats will be so aggressive with their own candidates; very serious and tough questions were asked and answered. Anyone who thinks Dems all think with one mind obviously has never been in a room full of Democrats. :o)
Overall I went home last evening VERY impressed with the three candidates, and with the local party organization. I attended because the topic is important and I wasn't sure who I would support (if anyone at all) but now my decision has been made. I wish I could vote for all three, but as it is I will vote for Greg Marrow. I do plan to make a contribution to all three campaigns.
One final note: I was also very impressed with the fact that the state Democratic party political director came to this forum. The Valley has come a long way in a short time.
