Senate candidate Gilmore touring Virginia to address energy production

Former Governor and Republican Senate candidate Jim Gilmore joins Coy Barefoot on the July 28 edition of WINA’s “Charlottesville–Right Now!” Gilmore is touring the state as part of his Working Families tour, and will be in Charlottesville at Sam’s Kitchen at 2:00 PM on Wednesday, July 30. He says that people are hurting from high gasoline prices, and that he’ll work to address that issue when he’s Senator. “We’ve got to have more domestic oil production and energy production, we’ve got to drill in ANWR and bring that oil in, and we’ve got drill off-shore,” Gilmore said. He said his opponent, fellow former Governor Mark Warner, won’t support those things.

  1. Mr. Gilmore,

    I would like to know where you stand on the Fair Tax Act currently proposed by Rep. Linder and Sen. Chambliss.

    I believe it is time to scrap the income tax and go to a consumption tax to encourage saving and investment in this country and to stop discourging initiative and risk in this country.

    I also believe the consumption tax should be as low as possible and require a 2/3 majority to change it.

    I believe our position as a world economic leader depends on this action.

    Please speak out on this subject.

    Thank you.
