Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I applaud your efforts to ensure that voters are well informed before voting in the upcoming November elections. I was truly privileged to serve in the General Assembly, and I’m excited to roll up my sleeves and bring a get the job done mentality back to the state capitol. The citizens of the 83rd House of Delegates district deserve a delegate who represents all of them. I understand the value of surveys and pledges for candidates who have not held elected office. However, I believe it is too easy for a candidate to say one thing on a survey or sign a pledge and then vote another way when elected. When I served my community for 10 years in the General Assembly, I cast thousands of votes. I respectfully ask that you and others involved review my record of delivering results for the Commonwealth of Virginia. That’s exactly what I’ll do if you place your trust in me this year. Should you wish to reach out to my campaign team, please email info@chrisstolle.com.
