Letter: Bill Replogle, Leesburg

Editor: Preserving our quality of life in Loudoun is joined at the hip with protecting our environment.

And in the upcoming election, Wendy Gooditis is our best option for delegate. She’s a staunch supporter of our local ecology, renewable energy and the preservation of our green spaces.

As our current delegate, she’s no slouch. Wendy serves as vice chair of the Agriculture, Chesapeake, and Natural Resources Committee and co-chair of the bipartisan Virginia Environment and Renewable Energy Caucus. She helped pass the Virginia Clean Economy Act, which made Virginia the first southern state with a 100% clean energy standard. She has also backed conservation easements that protect our natural green spaces. It’s not surprising that Wendy has been endorsed by the League of Conservation voters and the Sierra Club.

I don’t know Wendy’s opponent Nick Clemente personally, but I understand he is a former coal lobbyist who wants to do away with the Clean Economy Act. He is not right for this climate.

On the other hand, there’s a whole lot of good in Wendy Gooditis and I’m proud to support her re-election.

Bill Replogle, Leesburg

    Thank you Loudoun Now for publishing another letter in support of Wendy Gooditis. Her vilification by a few commenters is truly disappointing. It’s seems ridiculous to have to say this: Ms. Gooditis had absolutely NOTHING to do with the two alleged incidents at Stone Bridge High & Broad Run High. Trying to connect her to that is unconscionable. I know this is the “silly season” of politics. But that’s no excuse. Folks, have you no shame?

    Another former Democrat candidate endorses a Democrat candidate without disclosing he has been a Democrat candidate. And Loudoun Now doesn’t issue any disclosure either. Two in a row.

    The State Corporation Commission recently updated their estimated cost to residential electricity customers to just over $800 per year added to electricity bills in just 9 years, thanks to the “Virginia Clean Economy Act.”

    That doesn’t include all the new unsightly transmission lines, sub-stations, and thousands of acres of Chinese made solar panels required to make the extreme enviro fantasy work. And all for what? Wendy Gooditis actually believes she can change the weather?

    China, the largest polluter on the planet, has a huge energy crisis. They can’t build coal fired power plants fast enough. While Wendy Gooditis saddles Loudoun homeowners with increasing electric bills (a disguised tax hike), China is literally pouring on the coal.

    Wendy Gooditis supports sticking 800 dollar electric bill hikes on Loudoun homeowners, while buying up all the solar panels China can crank out via their coal powered plants. The Virginia Clean Economy Act, is a massive give away to enviro lobbyists, corporations, special interest groups, and Virginia homeowners get to pay for all of it.

    Gooditis has done nothing for the 10th District, except increase costs and taxes. She votes how and when she’s told by the Richmond bosses. We deserve so much better than Gooditis.
