Virginia Senate Race 2012 - #4031 - Susan Allen Listens to "Virginia Voices" in Charlottesville, Va. - Tuesday, July 10, 2012.
Tuesday, Susan Allen campaigned for George Allen in Charlottesville and Lynchburg as part of the Virginia Voices initiative, listening to the voices, stories, concerns and ideas of families and business and community leaders. Susan Allen began her day in Charlottesville, headlining a “Politics on the Porch” event at Our Lady of Peace where she talked with neighbors and community members about their views on Washington’s policies and encouraged more local residents to make sure their voice is heard this election. Afterwards, she met with members of the Jefferson Area Tea Party, the Albemarle-Charlottesville Republican Women’s League and the Albemarle County Republican Committee at Colonial Motors for a Brown Bag Lunch discussion on growing grassroots support this election as well as their concerns and ideas for fixing Washington. “As George and I have met with families and business leaders throughout Virginia, we share their desire for America’s Comeback built on the freedom of self-reliance, hard work and innovation,” said Susan Allen. “We want a different future than Washington’s excessive regulations that place unfair burdens on Virginia families, prevent small businesses from investing and growing, and cause diminished opportunities for our graduates and children. That’s why George is running for U.S. Senate. He has a vision to reinvigorate our economy and preserve the American Dream for generations to come.”
