From GCubed Founder & CEO Vernon Green Jr.:
I do not consider myself to be a Republican or a Democrat. As someone who grew up benefiting from social programs, I understand the need for such programs. As a business owner growing a successful company here in Stafford, I can also see issues from the other side.
What is important to me is that we have passionate and educated elected civil servants who actually govern, as opposed to digging in along party lines. We have enough of that going on right up the street in Washington. When I realized that candidates in our county were campaigning on smear allegations centered against the Islamic faith and electability due to race—with no proof supporting the claims—I knew I needed to act. I am sharing with you what I believe our county and state needs for success.
The truth is, our government needs an infusion of diversity that reflects the demographics of our county, our state, and our country. We need people who can communicate the challenges we face and fight for the resources we need to improve our communities. We have enough anger and religious and ethnic bias already pushed through politics. I cannot support anyone who uses these tactics for personal or political gain!
I am a military transplant to this area and Stafford, VA is now my home. Being active in the forums that impact our way of life is a requirement for me. Just as I spent 20 years in the Army fighting for freedom around the world, it is imperative that I exercise my own freedom here at home. I will do so come June 11th, 2019.
As someone who cares about and is active in the betterment of our community, I proudly support and endorse Qasim Rashid for Virginia Senate, 28th District. I have had the pleasure to sit down with him and discuss the issues; he represents the level headed, critical thinking skills we need to represent us in Richmond. His character and beliefs align with the values we need in leadership. I humbly request that you vote in this primary to elect him as the Democratic candidate, and in November to elect him as our next 28th District Senator.
