We have often said, “Campaigning is tough but governing is when the hard work really begins.” Now that conservatives have a fighting chance to “right the ship” we must be focused in our efforts to provide families with affordable quality education choices and ensure our election laws make it easy to vote but hard to cheat.
2021 is in our rear-view mirror and the upcoming General Assembly session lies ahead. Ever since the election on November 2nd, we have been preparing for the first day of the General Assembly on January 12th. Right away we formed the Virginia Education Opportunity Alliance (VEOA) which is made up of think tanks and grassroots organizations with expertise in education. We will be focused on increasing education options for families while at the same time helping our public schools provide the transparency parents have been fighting for over the past year. We are also part of the Virginia Free Elections coalition which will be leading efforts to eliminate private money influencing our elections and protecting the integrity of every legal vote.
We are beginning the 2022 General Assembly session with an event hosted by The Middle Resolution, Virginia Institute of Public Policy and Americans for Prosperity on the first day of session. Legislators will be invited to meet experts in various policy areas to learn what legislation will be introduced and how that legislation will have a positive impact on Virginians.
Following that event, we will be working with both Republican and Democrat legislators during the General Assembly to help them navigate the misinformation that will likely or surely come from the press, lobbyists and highly partisan individuals. We will keep you posted on the progress of the General Assembly and at some point, will be asking you to contact your legislators to encourage them to vote for policies that puts families first.
The Middle Resolution is entering its 14th year of helping elect good conservative legislators, pursuing public policy that advances freedom for every Virginian and when necessary, holding legislators accountable to the promises they made to their constituents. Our brand is recognized not only in Virginia but also across the country as an organization whose sole mission is to promote good governance. We could not have achieved this success without your generous support.
