These two candidates, running for the GOP nominations in the 2nd House District and for Stafford’s Rock Hill Supervisor seat, stand head and shoulders above their opponents.[read_more]
HOUSE OF DELEGATES DISTRICT 2
I have known Mark Dudenhefer since 2002. Mark is a man of integrity and conviction. He has a passion for local road improvements with a focus of driver safety to specifically include our young teenage drivers here in Stafford and Prince William County. Mark has also worked tirelessly as the Supervisor from Garrisonville and as the Delegate for House District 2 in Virginia. He has a strong record of being a fiscally conservative Republican.
It is disappointing to see the outright lies about Mark’s record while his opponent, who just recently joined the Stafford Republican Committee, has people writing blog posts distorting Mark’s voting record while he has no voting record of his own – except that the opponent did vote in the presidential Democratic Party primary – which I would never do as a fiscally conservative Republican.
Mark Dudenhefer has the endorsement of several Republican elected officials to include Charles Jett the Stafford County Sheriff, who is one of the most respected elected officials in our area.
Mark has also been endorsed by the Mayor of Dumfries VA, Former Governor George Allen, Supervisor Maureen Caddigan and FIVE current Stafford County Board of Supervisors and many others, including the NRA .
Mark and his wife Kay have annually for the past 11 years awarded a sizable college scholarship to local high school student seen to best fit two criteria: volunteering and giving back in the community. The scholarship is given in the name of Emily Dudenhefer, Mark and Kay’s daughter who tragically lost her life on the notoriously dangerous Mountain View Road. This is what spurred Mark to enter politics, in a desire to turn his personal tragedy into good for others as he endeavored to make local roads safer for us, and our own young drivers.
Mark has drafted a lean government plan that has been endorsed by many local business leaders. Mark has the experience in navigating and getting legislation passed. Mark voted to lower his own salary, He voted to cut spending and balance the budget; he repealed the BPOL tax and reduced property taxes. Mark is an advocate for education and his record proves that.
Please join this resident of the Second District in voting on June 9th in the Republican Primary for Mark Dudenhefer.
ROCK HILL SUPERVISOR
It is campaign season again and candidates are vying to condense their platforms into a 140 character Twitter posts. No detail and no evidence to back their claims. This is especially true for candidates who are new on the scene and cannot point to any record of ever supporting Republican values.
But there is one active Republican in the Rock Hill District – Wendy Maurer. As a Board Member of the Stafford Economic Development Authority she voted for a resolution to repeal the BPOL tax and fought alongside local businesses until 3:00 am to prevent its passing. When we lost, she helped motivate grassroots efforts to join the fight against the tax and worked tirelessly during the following election to help the Stafford Board of Supervisors gain a super majority on the Board, which ultimately resulted in its repeal.
Wendy doesn’t need to make promises through the signing of a no tax pledge. She has a long history in Stafford of fighting against taxes, serving on the Republican Committee, supporting Republican candidates, and working on campaigns to ensure our Republicans are elected. Her opponent, a recent resident of Stafford, who joined the Stafford Republican Committee the day she announced her intentions to seek the nomination, has no record of Republican activity.
Actions will always speak louder than words for this voter in the Rock Hill District.
