General Assembly Report Card Released!May 18, 2011
The Family Foundation Action today released the eleventh edition of its non-partisan General Assembly Report Card. The educational document, released at a capitol press conference (see video below), informs citizens on key votes taken by the General Assembly during the 2010 and 2011 sessions. It is our hope that the Report Card, along with Voter Guides that will be distributed in the fall, will motivate citizens to vote, and help them make informed choices when they go to the voting booth. All 140 members of the Virginia General Assembly are up for reelection this November.
As with each Report Card distributed over the years, hundreds of votes taken by the legislature during the past two years were reviewed. The first page of the Report Card explains the criteria used in determining which votes to include. Non-partisan and broad-based, the Report Card seeks not to benefit one party or one candidate over another, but to arm voting Virginians with the information they need to make an informed choice when they go to the ballot box.
This year’s Report Card has 40 “100 percenters” in the House. There are nine in the state Senate, twice the number from 2009.
To order additional copies of the Report Card to distribute in your church, community group and to like-minded friends and neighbors click here, or contact Roger Pogge at The Family Foundation Action at 804-343-0010 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. A suggested donation of $.25 per copy is encouraged to help defray costs of printing and distribution. Please also consider sponsoring the distribution of 100, 500 or even 1000 Report Cards with a donation of $25, $125 or $250. Checks should be written to "TFF Action" and sent to P.O. Box 100 Richmond, VA 23218 or you may phone in a credit card. Thank you for your support.
The mission of The Family Foundation Action is to protect families and promote responsible citizenship by giving Virginians the tools they need to hold their elected officials accountable. The Family Foundation Action is not a PAC and deos not endorse candidates.
