Bill Stanley Victorious in Special Election

for Virginia Senate

-Heading to Richmond immediately to work for the residents of the 19th Senate District-

MONETA- Senator-elect Bill Stanley issued the following statement upon winning today’s special election to fill the remainder of Congressman Robert Hurt’s term in the Virginia Senate:

“Our two-month campaign for Senate was an effort to ensure that the people of the 19th District continue to receive a strong voice in Richmond that represents their values and their concerns. Thanks to hundreds of volunteers and supporters across the district who took our message to heart, this effort was successful. Without their hard work and dedication, our victory would not have been possible.

“I congratulate my opponent, Hank Davis, on running an admirable, spirited campaign that focused on issues most important to the citizens of the 19th Senate District, and thank him for his long and dedicated service to the people of Pittsylvania County.

“I am humbled to have the privilege of serving my friends and neighbors in the 19th Virginia Senate District. Now comes the important work of government, and I look forward to my immediate trip to Richmond to begin work with my colleagues and Governor McDonnell to help create more jobs, and increase prosperity and long-term economic opportunity that the 19th District so badly needs.

“As Senator I will keep my promise to focus on bringing jobs to our area by opposing higher taxes, cutting spending and excessive regulation, and promoting a limited, efficient, and responsive state government. Most importantly, I look forward to responding to the concerns of the citizens of the 19th District and dutifully representing them in our State Capitol.”

    Congratulations on your victory! I am with the Loudoun County committee and we were following your race and rooting for you. I remember when you came and visited with us when you were running for RPV chair. At the time I said “that guy is going places,” and I am not surprised to have been proven right!

    Congratulations on your senatorial victory.

    It comes as no surprise to me. Boult and I always knew that you were a winner, and you certainly proved it by winning to replace another winner, Robert Hurt.

    Keep on doing it, keeping the 19th District uppermost in your heart and mind, and we look forward to another win in November 2011. Remember, we love you.
