Virginia voters face a critical choice in this year's election, not just between Democrats and Republicans but a choice between candidates who will side with Dominion Energy and candidates who will side with our commonwealth's families and landowners.
In the lieutenant governor's race, only Democrat Susan Platt has spoken out forcefully against the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley pipelines. The proposed pipelines would tear up our lands and hurt our environment.
Recently, I helped organize the Nellysford stop on Susan's "Pipeline Resistance Tour." At seven stops across the proposed pipeline sites, she committed to opposing the pipelines. Other candidates have taken a "wait and see" approach, but we need leadership, not equivocation. That's why Susan Platt has my vote in the June 13 primary.
Susan is not afraid to stand up to the big energy companies that own our government in Richmond. She has pledged to take no money from Dominion Energy, and she is going to fight for the health of our communities and our environment. On June 13, I'm voting NO on the pipelines by voting YES on Susan Platt.
