On Saturday afternoon there was an ice cream social held by Ron Villaneuva's campaign for the House of Delegates. It was at his campaign headquarters on Independence Boulevard.
The M.C. of the event was Virginia Beach City Councilman Glen Davis. The guest of honor was House Majority Leader Morgan Griffith. Griffith presented a check to Villanueva's campaign, plus a pledge to send more later.
Also in attendance were Republican Party of Virginia Beach Chairman (RPVB) Kenny Golden, Delegates Bob Tata and Sal Iaquinto, Congressional candidates Scott Riegel and Chuck Smith, state Senate hopeful Jeff McWaters, and previous 21st District Delegate John Welch. Intriguingly, neither Chris Stolle nor Rosemary Wilson was there.
Let's hope we can get Ron Villaneuva elected in November. Only the public employees unions have anything to gain by keeping Bobby Mathieson in Richmond. In fact, Mathieson's bills only have a 16% passage rate in the General Assembly. Of those, some are no-brainers like codifying the closure of the gun background check loophole.
