“An effective transportation system that efficiently moves people and goods is essential to Virginia’s economic prosperity,” said Ryan Dunn, executive director of VirginiaP2.

The Virginia Prosperity Project (VirginiaP2), the Virginia Chamber of Commerce’s non-partisan, voter education and GOTV campaign, released its fifth week video candidate interviews with this week’s focus on transportation. The eight-part series focuses on major topics facing Virginia and offers the candidates’ responses in their own words to help Virginia voters compare the positions and ideas of each candidate.

Key takeaways from the transportation videos include:

Ken Cuccinelli: “Transportation dollars under a Cuccinelli administration will always, always, always be used just for transportation.”

Terry McAuliffe: “We cannot grow and diversify our economy unless we have the best and most modern transportation system.”

Robert Sarvis: “Only a Libertarian, someone not tied up in the partisan system, can make sure the money raised through user fees actually leads to an offset in our taxes.”

VirginiaP2 also released the results of this week’s Google Survey that asked Virginians how they feel about transportation in the Commonwealth which can be seen at http://www.virginiap2.com/.

“An effective transportation system that efficiently moves people and goods is essential to Virginia’s economic prosperity,” said Ryan Dunn, executive director of VirginiaP2.

“The candidates discussed their support of the funding package passed in the Virginia Legislature as well as the steps they propose to continue to improve Virginia’s transportation system and address Virginia’s growing transportation needs,” Dunn concluded.

VirginiaP2’s candidate questionnaire videos focus on eight specific topics ranging from healthcare, workforce, business climate, taxation, and Virginia’s regulatory system. Comparing and contrasting the candidates on the issues that matter most to the public and employers and employees.

The Virginia Prosperity Project (VA P2) is a nonpartisan, issue education and election information clearing house used by thousands of Virginia voters to help them play a more active and informed role in government and the political process. The Prosperity Project does not endorse candidates and does not tell voters how to vote.
