Bob Marshall Endorsement
(Created: Friday, 14 Jan 2011)
The Black for Senate campaign is proud to announce the endorsement of Delegate Bob Marshall:
"Dick Black is one of the most highly-respected legislators in Virginia. I was his seatmate for eight years in the House of Delegates. Delegate Black was a powerful leader who often set the tone for the entire Republican Caucus.
Dick Black is known throughout Virginia as a leading conservative champion. We worked together enacting the Marriage Amendment, Parental Consent and other key pro-family measures. Dick and I fought unwarranted taxes and spending. We sued and successfully overturned HB 3202's establishment of unelected taxing authorities.
Dick Black is especially well-known for his vital work on transportation. He sponsored the legislation to build the Route 28 Freeway. Delegate Black's HB 735 and HB 1287 passed in 2002. Within months, VDOT contracted to build the first six flyovers and eliminate all traffic lights at those locations. By 2006, seven flyovers were already operating and five more opened the following year.
Dick Black is no ordinary legislator. His transportation accomplishments dramatically impacted every family in Eastern Loudoun County. He may prove to be the most important leader elected to the Virginia Senate in 2011."
