Chuck Colgan To Sponsor Massive Tax Hike

By Greg L | 18 December 2009 | 29th VA Senate, Virginia Politics | 12 Comments

I hope those of you out there who voted to re-elect Chuck Colgan are as pleased with him today as you were when you cast that vote.  Colgan announced he is going to be the chief patron this session for a bill hiking the state income tax by two billion dollars.  Although the measure is designed to replace the personal property tax, it will increase collections by approximately 300 million dollars above what had been previously collected.

If you care to give Colgan some input on his move to dig deeper into your pocket during these difficult times, you can reach him at (703) 368-0300 in the district, and in Richmond at (804) 698-7529.

    You think maybe you were feeling a bit PSYCHIC (that night) Greg?

    Maybe he was thinking (more) about his PARTING SHOT, “Chuck Colgan To Sponsor Massive Tax Hike!”

    I’ve been saying (for a while now) he’ll NOT run again.

    Plus, I’m SURE he’ll be spending a LOT of time in court in Buffalo (or was it Albany?) N.Y. (TRYING to blame the pilot)!

    Duck Colgan can avoid the voters when he chooses. Good luck on contacting him or getting a reply. In person is about the best way. Duck doesn’t own Colgan Air anymore so he is “off the hook” but I agree that he will not run again.

    He got the money for the airport and the road improvements around the airport (it only took him 20+ years to finally get Rt234 widened). Other than being a nice guy, I don’t see much that Duck has done and I have been here before he became a Senator.

    I certainly don’t wish Duck any ill-will but I really never saw Duck doing much except around the airport. Isn’t that where Colgan Airways started?

    Maybe the State will then have some money to open rest areas, clean trash from the roadside, complete road projects, repair potholes and increase mass transit .

    And maybe the next time “they” raise the price of candy bars “they’ll” make ‘em BIGGER?

    No shortage there at all. You can pick from Jackson Miller, John Stirrup, Bob Fitzsimmonds, Austin Haynes, Doug Waldron, Andy Harrover, Marc Aveni, and about a dozen other active Republicans. The issue isn’t whether there are strong candidates out there, but how we can select one of them without having a crazy free-for-all. Since this side of the county is a Republican stronghold we’ve got a deep and experienced bench.

    If Colgan retires, it’ll be interesting to see who Democrats will come up with to run on that side. Their bench is filled with nothing but people who couldn’t win elections, or have no experience at all in campaigns.

    Maybe Jeannette will run for his seat? How funny would it be if Jackson Miller decided to run for the seat only to face JR again?

    The Democrats are the ones with the weak bench. They had
    no one to seize the opportunity presented by Obama’s
    victory in PWC and the two cities and they still don’t.
    A majority of voters apparently are willing to vote Democratic,
    but they have to be motivated by a strong candidate
    with an energized campaign.

    “but they have to be motivated by a strong candidate
    with an energized campaign.”

    If not, a $5 bill or a pack of cigarettes and a bus ride to the polls works,too.

    Hopefully, the old sumbitch will take his lap dog Roger Snyder with him.
