Happy Sunday to you! It has been a busy week here at The Middle Resolution. Primary campaigns are in full swing, our team's been traveling the Commonwealth building our grassroots operation and in the mean time YOU have been helping us to advance economic freedom in your community...so much is happening!
In the midst of the hustle and bustle, we wanted to draw your attention to a couple articles that feature a couple of our endorsed candidates, Dan Moxley, running for the 24th Senate Seat and Vince Haley, running for the 12thSenate Seat have recently been featured in the news. Here's a bit about what's being said:
Dan Moxley is upholding a greater governmental interest in personal liberty in his bid for the District 24 state senate seat. "A larger government footprint means higher taxation and less individual freedom where freedom should exist," he said. "State government must make decisions that enable families to flourish through self-government and personal responsibility. For the sake of my family, for the sakes of the families of the commonwealth, I want to work in the legislature to secure these ends."
One of three candidates competing for the GOP nomination in a June 9 primary election, Moxley, of Staunton, owns Moxley Electronics, based in York, Pennsylvania, employing eight. He and his wife moved to Bath County seven years ago seeking a better place to raise their children before more recently settling in District 24. "We wanted our children to experience the same freedom and opportunities we experienced in our youth," said 53-year-old Moxley.

Additionally, here's what they're saying about Vince Haley:
Stopping federal overreach means Haley wants Virginia to take a much more aggressive stance in opposing federal intrusion into areas the Constitution reserves to the States, for example the illegal EPA power plan that will hike electricity rates in Virginia by 20-30%.
Haley's plan to phase out the income tax, a boon to capital formation, would add Virginia to the 9 states that do not have a state income tax and which are doing better economically than states that do.
Haley's two big messages are in stark contrast to his opponents who so far are not running on anything specific as far as we here at CHQ can tell.
"No one says it will be easy but phasing out and ultimately abolishing the state income tax here in Virginia would not be as hard as some people make it out to be," said Vince Haley to US News and World Report's Peter Roff. "The most important step is to be more responsible with spending. You don't have to enact any spending cuts; you just have to make sure you control the growth in spending. If we can control spending, we can apply the resulting budget surpluses to lowering income tax rates over time until we reach zero."
Controlling state spending - what a novel idea in the Old Dominion where state spending has long outstripped inflation no matter which party was in power.
Haley's dynamic ideas about phasing out the state income tax makes him part of a new generation of GOP leaders advocating a thoughtful and different approaching to the responsibilities of governing says Roff.
