Peter Rush, who has served two terms in the low-profile elected position of Soil and Water Conservation Director, is the Democratic nominee for House District 10. He challenges incumbent delegate Randy Minchew, a past president of the Loudoun County Republican Committee. I’ve known Peter for quite a while, having served in elected office with him during his first term. He’s smart, informed, level-headed, and passionate about his beliefs.
My old Langley High School classmate, Randy Minchew, is a successful land-use lawyer with a compelling opposition to taxes. People should remember that he dislikes tax money so much that he opposed letting Virginians get their own taxes back when he joined the rest of the
LaRock Republican caucus to prevent Medicaid expansion. Personally, I think there’s more to good representation than being against something, especially something good. You also have to stand for something. Peter can speak for himself about what he’s for in the coming months.
We already know some of what Randy Minchew stands for.
