To the Editor: In George Washington's Farewell Address, he implored our young nation to avoid political parties, which would fracture our unity, and instead advised us to choose leaders by exercising the virtue of neutrality - what is the candidate's merit and reputation.

Connect Four

Complete ballot of 11th District candidates faced off in Lake Ridge.

It wasn’t so much a down and dirty debate as a no-frills four-way question-and-answer session. Not that AARP and the League of Women Voters of the Fairfax Area (LWVFA), two of the sponsors of the “Meet the Candidates” series billed the Oct. 14 event as such. Tuesday’s meeting was the penultimate of seven events in the series.

Letter: Changing Status Quo

Letter to the Editor

“She is a caring person.” “Barbara takes the time to address the issues that affect female veterans.” Barbara has a “personal touch.”

Letter: Not ‘Holding the Line’

Letter to the Editor

Here we are a mere two weeks away from the election for the 10th Congressional District and the mainstream press is reliably ignoring John Foust’s long tax hiking record. Since being a Supervisor in Fairfax County, John Foust has voted for every single tax hike presented to him.

Letter: A Price of Obamacare

Letter to the Editor

What's in a number? When someone throws out a number, what does that really mean? If someone says, for example, 250,000 people have had their insurance canceled on them in Virginia because of Obamacare, what does that mean?

Letter: Honest Like Wolf

Letter to the Editor

As a resident of eastern Fairfax County, I have been represented by Representative Frank Wolf, by Delegate Barbara Comstock, and by Supervisor John Foust.

Letter: Voting for Taxes

Letter to the Editor

Since John Foust has told us nothing about himself, I thought I would look for myself at his record. Turns out John Foust has voted or supported to raise a lot of our taxes.

Letter: Candidate Who Raises Taxes

Letter to the Editor

John Foust unlike Barbara Comstock has a love of raising taxes. John Foust hasn’t met a tax that he would not want to cut and recently said that he would raise taxes if elected to Congress. If history is any judgment of character, John Foust’s history on taxes is totally abysmal.

Letter: Questioning Ultrasound

Letter to the Editor

I have heard Barbara Comstock speak and have read her well-written campaign materials. She impresses me as bright, energetic, experienced and personable.

Letter: Hidden Record

Letter to the Editor

The recent revelations of Barbara Comstock’s failure to disclose her paid lobbyist role and income from out-of-state special interest groups are no surprise. Ms. Comstock was elected and paid to be a representative of Northern Virginians.

Letter: Earning a ‘Seat at the Table’

Letter to the Editor

I am a freshman at Langley High School and have lived in McLean my whole life. I have participated in Delegate Barbara Comstock’s Young Women’s Leadership Program for the last few years and it has been a fantastic opportunity for me.

Letter: A Common Sense Candidate

John Foust made a name for himself by serving as a Fairfax County Supervisor for the past seven years.

Crashing the Parties

Marc Harrold, Libertarian; Joe Galdo, Green, run for Congress.

Marc Harrold is a self-professed creature of habit. He’s been going to the same bars and restaurants near his Fairfax home for years, where the close friends he’s made there say his great sense of humor and diverse intelligence help him “hold court” and converse easily with anyone, on any subject.

Sarvis: Warner-Gillespie Debate ‘Disappointing’

Libertarian candidate says chamber’s decision to include only major-party candidates in U.S. Senate debate a “disservice” to voters.

After a full day of campaigning at Fort Belvoir on Friday, Oct. 11, Robert Sarvis talked about his campaign for U.S. Senate, and his disappointment in not being invited to participate in Tuesday’s U.S. Senate Debate — a major televised debate hosted by The Fairfax Chamber at Capitol One’s convention center in McLean. “The Fairfax Chamber informed us that it was nothing other than ‘tradition’ to only invite major party candidates,” Sarvis said. “But this was after we formally requested an invitation, noted that over 145,000 Virginians voted for Robert Sarvis for governor in 2013, and sent them a petition signed by over 1,000 Virginians in support of a three-candidate debate.”
