Letter: Support Nixon to work on your behalf

As a Republican elected official who represents your area in the Virginia Senate I have had the opportunity to work closely with Steve Nixon in his capacity as a member of the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors. Prior to the redistricting process that placed most of rural Culpeper County in the District that I represent, I had also worked with Steve as a member of the Rappahannock River Basin Commission.

Several things that I would note about Steve.

He is conscientious about his responsibilities. Faithfully attending meetings is a primary responsibility of an elected official. To represent you, he understands that he must be there. You can count on Steve to be there and to engage in the deliberations on your behalf.

Steve is a staunch conservative, but understands that you must engage and accommodate, when possible, divergent viewpoints and needs in the community. He looks for bipartisan solutions rather than engaging in counterproductive rhetoric.

Steve Nixon is knowledgeable on the issues and quick to engage with observations and pertinent questions. He also has a quick wit and a demeanor that makes working with him pleasant and productive.

A hard worker that you can trust! I support Steve Nixon to continue working for you on the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors.
