Opinion: Letter to the Editor: A True Leader

State Sen. Jennifer Wexton is challenging our Congresswoman Barbara Comstock in November. But Wexton’s partisan record and the overtly partisan attacks she is already waging in this race are not the right fit for our community.

The 10th Congressional District doesn’t need a partisan. We need an independent voice with a track record of getting things done. Fortunately, we already have Congresswoman Comstock. Comstock’s focus on domestic violence, drug trafficking, and opioid abuse shows that she wants to solve problems — not wage political fights.

Comstock’s willingness to speak out on any issue, and to buck her party leadership on regional priorities like Metro funding, demonstrates she is a true leader.

And Comstock’s tireless activity at community events across the region shows that she has a work ethic that cannot be matched.

We have a strong leader in Comstock. We don’t need a partisan squabbler like Wexton.
