Delegate Chris Saxman addressed the Virginia delegation at our lunch session Friday at the "Defending the American Dream" summit in Washington, DC.
Saxman, the driving force behind the Virginia "Cost Cutting Caucus," has been one of the leaders in paring down costs, removing waste, and bringing sunshine to the layers of bureaucracy otherwise known as "state spending."
Del. Saxman is a dynamic speaker, and Friday was no exception. He knows how to communicate with a crowd especially an enthusiastic group of fellow thinkers and activists. Virginia, he said, has to be the example for the rest of the country in showing fiscal responsibility. Electeds, he continued, need to turn off the spin and listen to the citizens.
As a small business owner, Saxman's ideas on limited spending and cost-cutting resonate with tax-weary voters and have made him one of the state leaders with Americans For Prosperity. He and Mark Obenshain represent what we need more of in the Republican Party ... strong conservative leaders who are not afraid to publicly stand up for what they believe in.
