To The Editor:
As a veteran it disappoints me that Congressman Gerry Connolly would belittle a veteran’s service as he has to Colonel (Ret.) Chris Perkins over the past few weeks.
Now more than ever we need true leadership representing us in Washington, D.C. And in my opinion, Gerry Connolly is not a leader. He is a follower – a puppet for President Barack Obama and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi who is more concerned with remaining on their good side than fighting for what Virginians need. For him to say that Colonel Perkins doesn’t have the sweat equity in his local district needed to be a Congressman is just wrong. While Connolly was overtaxing us as the Chairmanof the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Colonel Perkins was leading hundreds of troops into battle overseas to keep America safe. Without brave men and women like Colonel Perkins, Congressman Connolly wouldn’t be able to build schools and sidewalks.
It’s time we voted Congressman Connolly out of office for good. I urge you to consider voting for Colonel Chris Perkins this Tuesday.
