Virginia Candidates Discuss Virginia’s Business Climate “In Their Own Words”

'We feel the videos are the most trusted source for candidate information because voters hear directly from the candidates themselves,' concluded Dunn.

The Virginia Prosperity Project (VirginiaP2), a respected source for informing voters in Virginia, kicked-off the first of its eight part candidate questionnaire video series today. The first of the video responses is centered on the state of Virginia’s business climate, with pointed responses from Ken Cuccinelli, Terry McAuliffe, E.W. Jackson and Ralph Northam.

Key takeaways from the candidates include making Virginia more competitive by, “Lowering both the business income tax and the personal income tax, to 4 and 5 percent respectively,” said Ken Cuccinelli. Terry McAuliffe stated that, “You can’t propose tax cuts without saying how you are going to pay for them, and the problem could be that you end up cutting education at a time when we should be investing in education.”

“The candidate videos focus on eight specific topics ranging from business climate, workforce, healthcare, taxation, and Virginia’s regulatory system. This is an opportunity for the public and employers and employees to compare and contrast the candidates on the issues that matter to them most,” said Ryan Dunn, executive director of VirginiaP2.

“We feel the videos are the most trusted source for candidate information because voters hear directly from the candidates themselves,” concluded Dunn.

Known for its nonpartisan approach to voter education, VirginiaP2 delivers objective, business-focused election and policy information to voters across the Commonwealth. VirginiaP2 provides helpful tools and data to assist voters in registering to vote, understanding where the candidates stand on economic issues, where to find their polling place and how government decisions will affect their jobs, their industry and their livelihoods.

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.
