LATINA VOTERS GO ALL OUT FOR DEEDS IN VA.

 

 

 

ALEXANDRIA – 
As support for Sen. Creigh Deeds builds among Virginia's Hispanic community, Latinas throughout the Commonwealth will be reaching out to their friends and neighbors on the phones and at the doors to talk about Deeds' plan to move Virginia forward. Saturday October 24, volunteers will be gathering in Richmond, Roanoke and in Northern Virginia, where they will be joined by the First Lady of Virginia, Anne Holton.  

Virginia Latinas back Deeds for his strong record of fighting to expand opportunity for all Virginians. Throughout his 18 year legislative career, Deeds has worked to expand educational opportunities by investing in Virginia schools, and brought new jobs to the Commonwealth by creating the modern Governor's Opportunity Fund.

As governor, Deeds will continue his work to expand opportunity for the Latino community.  He will ensure that no student misses out on a college education because of the high cost of tuition. Deeds will create a "Virginia Forward" scholarship, which pays 50% of in-state tuition for any Virginia student with a B average who commits to two years of community service after graduation. Deeds will continue the economic policies of Governors Kaine and Warner that have brought new jobs and economic opportunity to the state, and has a plan to help increase minority-owned businesses earn state contracts. And as governor, Deeds will support equal opportunity laws -- ensuring no Virginian faces discrimination on the basis of race, gender, disability or sexual orientation, and will have the most diverse administration in Virginia’s history.
