LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Money shouldn’t be all that talks about in politics |  Editorial

His opponent, Blakely Lockhart, on the other hand, is relying on small donations from ordinary people, and has pledged to refuse donations from Dominion. Who is giving candidates money in Virginia? The candidates for the 56th district of the General Assembly show a marked contrast. From his own campaign finance reporting we see that John McGuire has taken in a considerable amount in donations from Dominion Energy and industry lobbying groups, such as the auto dealers association and beer wholesalers.

Whose interests will be represented when bills are proposed and voted on? I want our lawmakers to work together to solve our problems without being under pressure to satisfy the demands of large donors.  The legislators say they don’t let these large campaign contributions influence their lawmaking, but how can you believe that? If they were not impacting legislation, why would they give candidates money?
