Blue Louisa: A blog Covering Central Virginia & national politics from a progressive perspective
I’m voting for Juanita Jo Matkins for delegate next Tuesday, Nov. 5th, and I hope you will too.
Her heart and mind will be on the job of bringing the voice of the people of Louisa to Richmond. She will be focused on solving the problems facing us here. She knows our district and she understands rural issues, such as lack of internet. She will spend her time and energy working on our problems.
Our legislators are only in Richmond for a short time each year. But that doesn’t make it a part-time job. It takes year-round work to find solutions to the problems facing the citizens of the Commonwealth. Juanita Jo will be spending her time between legislative sessions hard at work for us. Being recently retired, she has the time and has publicly committed to representing us in Virginia’s General Assembly for the full term of service.
Juanita Jo Matkins has lived in Louisa for over 40 years. She taught school in Louisa for 20 years. She grew up on a tobacco farm. She not only understands our needs, but she also knows how to work in a bipartisan way to solve problems. We need her voice in Richmond.
