Delegates make endorsements in Spotsylvania races


Spotsylvania, VA. Delegate Mark Cole (R-88th), and Delegate-to-be Peter Farrell (R-56th) made select endorsements in Spotsylvania GOP races today.

Cole endorsed Tim McLaughlin for Chancellor Supervisor. "The one thing we have learned during the last decade is how important it is to elect people of character who share our conservative views. Tim McLaughlin is one of those conservatives. Like me, he is a military veteran, someone who knows what it means to serve and live by a code of honor. He is a small government, low tax conservative who will use his experience as a small business owner to bring jobs back to Spotsylvania. He is pro-life and supports the 2nd Amendment; he will take a stand to defend your rights. He is a straightforward, honest conservative, that I am proud to endorse for Chancellor Supervisor".

Cole also endorsed Ann Heidig for Livingston Supervisor, Paul Trampe for Salem Supervisor, Al King for Commissioner of the Revenue, Dawn Shelley for Chancellor School Board, and Kirk Twigg for Livingston School Board.

Cole has several precincts in Spotsylvania due to the recent redistricting, including three of the four Chancellor precincts, all three Courtland precincts, and parts of Battlefield as well. He was unopposed in 2009 and has been delegate since 2001, having formerly been a supervisor in Spotsylvania.

Peter Farrell, Republican nominee for delegate in the 56th House district covering southwestern Spotsylvania, also endorsed several Spotsylvania candidates today.

“As a small businessman, I encounter every day the difficulties that government places in the way of job creation- increased taxes and burdensome regulations. The Spotsylvania GOP slate of candidates- Al King, Ann Heidig, Jerry Logan, Tim McLaughlin, and Paul Trampe- also know these obstacles to job creation. They have thought deeply about how to reduce these obstacles, how to create a business friendly environment for all businesses. These leaders are exactly what is needed for these times, and I endorse them for office in Spotsylvania County."

Farrell also endorsed Kirk Twigg for School Board in Livingston. Both of Farrell’s Spotsylvania precincts are in Livingston.

“Good schools require leaders with courage and character, leaders who understand the unique needs kids have. Kirk Twigg understands in a way only a father of a special needs child can, and I endorse him for Livingston School Board.”

Cole and Farrell are both running unopposed this year.

“Mark Cole and (soon) Peter Farrell are the direct representatives of our county in Richmond. They lead the fight to create a good business environment by lowering taxes and regulations that harm job creation”, said Spotsylvania GOP Chairman Steve Thomas. “That they should endorse several Spotsy GOP candidates is indicative of their recognition that Spotsylvania needs to lower taxes and regulation as well. Our candidates are honored by their endorsement. ”
