Del. Albert Pollard (D-99) did his part. He endorsed Creigh Deeds for Governor prior to the Democratic primary in June and appeared with him at multiple events in Fredericksburg and the Northern Neck. But the dust has settled and the voters of the 99th district have spoken: Pollard for Delegate and McDonnell for Governor.
Pollard, who has a lifetime 96% rating from the Virginia League of Conservation Voters and is a recipient of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation Legislator of the Year award, has been named to Bob McDonnell’s Transition Team Advisory Group for Natural Resources.
Delegate Albert C. Pollard, Jr., was recently appointed to Governor-elect McDonnell’s Transition Team Advisory Group for Natural Resources.
The news which first appeared on the Washington Post website is an effort of the incoming administration’s efforts to reach across the aisle.
“It’s an honor to be appointed to Governor-elect McDonnell’s transition team,” said Pollard. “At this point in our nation’s history, we cannot waste time with petty partisan politics. Future generations will not care if the Chesapeake Bay was cleaned by one party or another – only that the job was done.”
Now maybe Speaker Howell will wise up and put Pollard on the Agriculture, Chesapeake, and Natural Resources Committee where he belongs?
