KILMARNOCK, VA- The Democratic Candidate for HD-99 has signed onto the Term Limits Convention Pledge, committing to fight for term limits in the Virginia Legislature. By signing the pledge, Francis Edwards agrees to reduce lobbyist and special interest influence and make room in Congress for the citizen legislator.
"Politicians with term limits must return to ordinary society after serving in the legislature and are forced to think more carefully about how their votes effect their constituents," Francis said. "Virginians are sick of power politics so we're committing to taking a step in the right direction."
According to the U.S. Term Limits Website, only four Virginia legislators have signed the pledge.
