When I got this from Delegate Bob Marshall yesterday, I thought I would pass it on.
I did an interview with Larry O’Conner on his show on WMAL yesterday to talk about some of the important issues of my campaign. Please give it a listen at the podcast link here and share it with your friends and neighbors.
If I am going to win this election I need all the help I can get. I am still in need of folks to knock on doors on Saturdays and week nights and to make phone calls using our call system app. If you can help in that way please contact my campaign at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continued support!
Delegate Bob Marshall

Note also that this is an issue in the gubernatorial race, Gillespie wins backing of business PAC after vowing to oppose ‘bathroom bills’.
Republican Ed Gillespie won the endorsement of an influential Northern Virginia business group after privately pledging he would oppose any bills dictating which bathrooms transgender people must use — a promise that shocked conservative backers and seems to differ from some of his public statements. (continue here)
Note that Gillespie’s position with respect to schools is probably what is what is important.
“Ed doesn’t think girls should be compelled to share a locker room shower or hotel room on an overnight band trip with boys,” then-spokesman Matthew Moran said via email. “As governor, he would work with the Trump Administration to end the Obama Administration’s overreaching policy so parents and local school boards can enact commonsense policies to protect the safety and privacy of our children. They should make these decisions, not the state or Federal Government.” (from here)
Frankly, I think the bathroom issue is one private businesses should deal with on their own. If they are confused as to what is appropriate, we as customers can punish them in the pocketbook.
Our primary concern should be the public school system, how the people in charge are indoctrinating our children. On that issue Gillespie seem to be making the right noises. Perhaps we need to apply enough pressure to ensure he continues to make the right noises and follows up appropriately after he wins, assuming he does.
