Ken Cuccinelli, the comeback kid

Some political watchers, me included, have had a tendency in their commentary to declare the Virginia Governor’s race all but over. However, that’s probably a mistake.

Veterans are an untapped resource

The unemployment rate for returning veterans in Virginia is 12.2% as compared with 5.5% for rest of the working population. It’s a serious problem. However, its solution, narrowing that gap, and getting veterans back into the workforce isn’t necessarily a government responsibility. Rather, it’s something that we as a community need to encourage and support.
