Loudoun Chamber to Hold 10th District Congressional Debate

The Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce is announced that it will host a debate between U.S. Rep. Jennifer T. Wexton (D-VA-10) and her Republican challenger, Aliscia Andrews.

According to the Chamber’s announcement, 2020 has shown the importance of having representatives in Congress that prioritize the needs of the business community and keeping Americans employed. The November election will decide how the nation tackles recovering both from the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic slump.

In 2018, the 10th Congressional District’s election played a role in the Democratic party taking control of the House of Representatives when Wexton won the seat from incumbent Republican Barbara Comstock.

The debate will be free to watch online. Both candidates will meet for the first time in the same room, without an audience, in a moderated by Loudoun Chamber President and CEO Tony Howard. They will face questions from a panel of business leaders.

The debate will be held Oct. 15 from 8:30 – 10 a.m. Registration is required to watch. Register online at https://www.loudounchamber.org/events/webinar-policymaker-series-10th-congressional-district-candidates-debate/.

    “They will face questions from a panel of business leaders.” What he meant to say was “face questions from Wexton supporters.”

    When will the people get to do the questioning of these two?

    Is it fair to hold Congressional representatives accountable for what they didn’t do or just review what they chose to act upon? I am disappointed that we have not seen a federal transportation resource meeting arranged with Maryland, Virginia and our BOS to seriously look at the long term needs of the Point of Rocks bridge. This is an interstate highway which by definition is within the purview of the federal government yet even though our Congresswoman has been alerted to this need NOTHING remotely substantive has been done! On the other hand the challenger hasn’t mentioned this issue as even being on her radar so what is really fair. Expect positive actions and throw out the inept, choose a different horse even though they probably won’t finish the race either or don’t vote at all? Unfortunately far too many choose to not vote which leaves our future in the hands of highly motivated partisans. That much I know is wrong. 🙂 (Can someone please wake up candidates to real issues needed to be addressed and stop the recent marxist nonsense, socialist nonsense, re-writing history nonsense, defund the police nonsense!, eliminate the electoral college nonsense and incessant pandering for votes nonsense by giving our children’s futures away with un-sustainable national debt?)
