Scott's Response to We Need A Third Party

Scott's response to a letter to the editor submitted to the Roanoke Times, sharing the need for a third party to represent Virginia's interests at the national level.

"I believe the citizens of this state and this country are capable of hearing the whole, honest truth from their elected representatives, and that’s exactly what I intend to give them by providing viable competition in a polarized two party market...."

More challengers to Rep. Morgan Griffith emerge in 9th District race

“By limiting ourselves to two parties, we’re limiting our options,” he said. “When we always do what we’ve always done, we always get what we’ve always got and then to expect different changes is the colloquial version of insanity.”

The Roanoke Times explores the numerous voices demanding change in the Ninth district.

Carilion New River Valley Medical Center installing solar panels to power hospital

Scott headed an initiative by Carilion New River Valley Medical Center to establish a source of renewable energy for the hospital. Thanks to Scott's vision for efficiency and pragmatism, this project will benefit the environment as well as benefitting the community, as the energy savings are passed on to consumers in the form of lower costs.

 

Regarding the decision for these cutting edge solar panels to premiere at one of Carilion's rural facilities, Scott's answer was simply "It is rural Virginia, please don't mistake that for back woods Virginia."

Democratic Dissatisfaction

Democrats lack faith in the party establishment, and Republicans trust their own representatives as little as they trust their opponents. I intend to offer a third option.

We need a third party

I started this campaign because I felt a call from the people around me. I believe the people feel that they are not being represented by either of the two major parties, and letters like this tell me I'm not the only one who feels this way.
