29th VA Senate Category Archives
We’ve been waiting, and waiting, and finally the time has come. The Gainesville Times is reporting that Senator Chuck Colgan is not going to seek re-election in 2015.
There are a lot of potential candidates on all sides with a political pedigree, and of course a lot that don’t have one, all of whom are going to […]
Reader “JimmyV” noticed a new facebook page tonight for Andy Harrover for Mayor of Manassas, which is quite surprising and raises some interesting questions. This is the first I’d heard that Harrover was interested in the post, and raises interesting questions about what Hal Parrish’s plans might be in public service.
Chuck Colgan’s facebook page featured an ad today where he states “the next time someone tells you that I voted to raise taxes, please ask them to show you a copy of my vote on that particular tax.” Now there’s something I can help Senator Colgan with, but instead of waiting until someone discusses it […]
A nun gets killed by a drunken illegal alien in a horrific vehicle accident on a Sunday morning. State officials learn that the illegal alien had obtained a drivers license using an “Employment Authorization Document” given to him by the feds, and determine that Virginia should no longer issue driver’s licenses based on these credentials. So […]
The on-again-off-again candidacy of Chuck Colgan continues today with an announcement that Colgan will run for re-election in the 29th Senate District. The behind-the-scenes buzz suggests that Colgan’s re-election is little more than a ploy to allow his grandson enough time to move into the district from Colorado so he would be eligible to run […]
NLS is reporting that finally, Chuck Colgan is packing it in. Folks in the 50th House District better start finding a replacement for Delegate Jackson Miller, because we’re going to need someone to fill his shoes pretty darned quick.
Significant: If Jackson Miller is the Republican nominee, the Democrats majority in the Senate of Virginia shrinks […]
Finally we have an answer from the Chairman of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee as to why they aren’t going to allow debate on bills that would address illegal immigration in Virginia. Senator Henry Marsh claims he “didn’t want to take up time with them” according to a report from Delegate Scott Lingamfelter. Three […]
A number of Senator Chuck Colgan’s constituents were rather taken aback after Colgan sat on his hands and did nothing while the Senate of Virginia shot down a number of bills that would help state and local officials reduce the number of illegal aliens unlawfully present in Virginia, even after an illegal alien massacred three […]
What would the chances be that someone who has no fixed address and hijacks a car across the street from Frank Principi’s biggest illegal alien day laborer site might in fact be an illegal alien? Pretty good, it turns out, although the News & Messenger hasn’t quite gotten around to providing that information yet.
Two days before an illegal alien goes on a murderous rampage in Manassas that leaves three people dead, Delegate Patrick Hope of Arlington tries to argue that it is unfair to have illegal aliens who commit felonies held in our jails and that law enforcement doesn’t have the resources to detain and process for deportation […]
We’ve heard this before, but might it actually be true this time?
Nevertheless, his grandson, the Rev. Charles Colgan, came from Colorado to deliver the Senate’s opening prayer today. Just before taking to the podium, Rev. Colgan, who last gave the prayer three years ago, said he’d traveled the long distance because he “wanted to be […]
Delegate Jackson Miller had well over 200 people pack a Manassas firehouse for a campaign event this evening, complete with a visit from Governor Bob McDonnell. What I find fascinating about something like this is here’s someone who gets top-flight support from the Governor, raises a ton of money as his sponsor list for the […]
In anticipation of some sort of announcement by Senator Colgan, candidates are ramping up for a primary campaign that should be rather interesting. Bob Fitzsimmonds has already sent out a fundraising letter, and now Jackson Miller is getting attention over at Virtucon. Can some news from Senator Colgan about his much-anticipated retirement be far behind?
Now that […]
Senator Chuck Colgan has done a great job so far this session of channeling Louis XIV. When VDOT complained about the costs of HB 652, a bill designed to ensure that those who have their property seized under eminent domain are properly compensated, Colgan voted to kill the bill, ensuring that the demonstrated practice of […]
Once again speculation runs rampant about whether Senator Chuck Colgan will seek re-election. This familiar discussion is refueled by comments reported in the Virginian-Pilot and replayed at Virginia Virtucon that disclose health concerns may force Senator Colgan to retire from public service. This is not at all the retirement scenario Prince William County Republicans were […]
Not much notice on this, but if you’re free Tuesday night (tomorrow) there’s another Americans For Prosperity event in Gainesville that you probably won’t want to miss. While Senator Chuck Colgan is supporting higher taxes on Virginians during these difficult economic times, some citizens are gathering to demonstrate that we want smaller government, not higher […]
The central political struggle that grips this year’s session of the General Assembly is quite understandably the budget. With revenues down and plenty of good causes deserving of taxpayer dollars, Senate Democrats in particular have been taking potshots at the Governor and the Republican majority in the House for rejecting the idea of raising taxes […]
The other day Jim Hoeft pointed out the wonderfully “post partisan” way that Virginia Democrats in the Senate of Virginia are exercising their leadership which isn’t a whole lot unlike the way Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi demonstrate the new “post partisan” era on Capitol Hill. Unlike Republican Speaker of the House Howell ensuring […]
Given that there’s a big issue with Dave Marsden’s fake residency within the Senate District he’s running in, here’s an interesting question for Prince William County voters to ponder:
Where does Senator Chuck Colgan live? No, where does he really reside?
If you answered in Vint Hill, you’d be wrong. He’s renting that house out but picking […]
Senator Chuck Colgan somehow seems to think that his constituents are demanding an increase in Virginia’s income tax, according to the WashPo:
“We hadn’t had an increase in the income tax rate in 38 years. I’d be willing to bet there’s not another state in the union that has held fast on that rate for that […]
