Upcoming Election

For those of you who vote in Charlottesville, there is an election coming up for City Council, and Rob Schilling, the lone Republican on the otherwise narcissistic City Council, is looking to become the first Republican in more than forty years to hold his seat for consecutive terms. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Schilling again recently, and he is optimistic about the upcoming election, but he recognizes that he will need a lot of help with Charlottesville Democrats likely to launch a very negative campaign against him.

Rob Schilling has a lot to be proud of from his first term. He helped to spearhead the elected school board campaign, which was widely supported by Charlottesville Republicans and Democrats alike (well, except for the remaining City Council members). He has also proven himself to care about the voter, as he has gotten to know many people around the city and earned their trust by promising to be a voice for the voter.

But a second term is not guaranteed, so do what you can to help. Go door to door with him, make phone calls, or even just put a bumper sticker on your car or a sign in your yard. I am starting by placing a link to his site on the sidebar.

Rob Schilling worked very hard in his first term; please show him that he deserves a second.
