UPDATE: This is for visitors from Anonymous Is A Woman: Politics and Religion and Culture. Please thank Karen Duncan for her complimentary remarks about Keith Fimian’s energy plan (at this post). Also, please feel free remind her of several little details.
- Many residents of the 11th CD work in and buy plenty of gasoline in congressional districts outside of the 11th CD (If you are not certain, please check here.).
- It is the USA that needs an energy plan, not just the 11th CD.
- To serve us, our congressman must go outside of the 11th CD. On his way to D.C., he might even have to stop in the 8th CD to buy gasoline. 😀
I continue to be impressed with Keith Fimian. The guy is a quick study. Although he does not have any previous political experience, he seems to have a pretty good grasp of what he needs to do. Just as important, he also seems quite able to do what he needs to do.
Here is extract from an email he just sent out.
“High gas prices underscore the need for a comprehensive energy policy that ensures energy security and energy independence for the United States. Politicians in both parties have failed to advance such a policy and this is a tragedy for Virginia families. It hurts at the gas pump and with our electricity bills. As a common sense businessman who advocates common sense solutions, I want to break the ideological stalemate, end the political gamesmanship and put the American people first!”
“Let’s begin by acknowledging that those on the left are correct when they say we need to promote clean alternative energy sources like solar, wind and geothermal power. Though large quantities of these energy sources at affordable prices are some number of years away let us also acknowledge that and that those on the right are correct then they say we also need to develop domestic U.S. oil and natural gas production now. So let’s take the best ideas, pull them together and get the career politicians out of the way to solve this problem.”

Keith Fimian held a press conference today at a local gas station and over 20 concerned mothers from across the district attended to show their support! Even Pumpy the Gas Pump make an appearance!
