One of the areas of Virginia government in dire need of reform is the transportation funding formula. It's rural bias has made for good roads in the western part of the Commonwealth while Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads choke on congestion. Conventional wisdom is that population shifts will mean more General Assembly seats for urban areas with redistricting, allowing for the formula to eventually be changed.
Just one problem: the Democratic nominee for Governor is from rural Virginia. In fact, the smallest county in the Commonwealth. Any attempt to correct the funding imbalance would probably be met with a veto by a Governor Deeds.
Just another reason to vote for Bob McDonnell for Governor. A vote for Deeds is a vote to continue to send our Gas Tax revenue to rural Virginia while we struggle to get by.
