The Virginia gubernatorial election is less than 2 months away. Vying in the race for governor are candidates Creigh Deeds and Bob McDonnell. Aside from the carefully scripted speeches, feel good photo opts and bombarding ads we should be able to answer the question who are Creigh Deeds and Bob McDonnell prior to their ascension to the office of governor?
Neither candidate is new to the political arena. Creigh Deeds served formerly as a member of the Virginia House of Delegates, followed by being a State Senator. His opponent Bob McDonnell served formerly as a member of the Virginia House of Delegates as well and then as State Attorney General. An evaluation of their political resumes would tell us more about their position on important issues that concern the majority of us – jobs, taxes, education, health care and the list goes on.
Let’s not be guilty of going to the polls uninformed or just going with the flow and allowing our vote to be taken for granted. Let’s search the net to learn who candidates Creigh Deeds and Bob McDonnell really are, as action speaks louder than words.
