Mayor Dwight Jones Endorsed Brian Moran

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have had several conversations with Brian Moran about issues surrounding working families and poverty. He has proven to be extremely knowledgeable on some of the potential ways to address these issues and clearly has a very impressive record of working for working families. What is also extremely important is how passionate he is about bringing about real progress in these areas. This is important because when you combine his strong record with the fact that he is passionate about the topic, I am confident he would work hard to address the issues of poverty if he's elected governor.

Apparently I'm not the only person who has noticed this because Mayor Dwight Jones mentioned this in a statement today when he endorsed Brian for governor.
“Brian has a long, proven record of fighting hard for working families in Virginia,” Jones said. “I’ve known Brian for more than a decade and worked side-by-side with him in the legislature. We’ve fought for equal rights, quality education and equal opportunity for everyone.”

Mayor Jones is the former Chair of the Legislative Black Caucus and Delegate from Richmond City. He and Moran worked together on a number of initiatives in the General Assembly, including raising the minimum wage.

“Dwight Jones is a man of character who always does what’s best for working people,” Moran said. “I’m proud and honored to have his support. Richmond is our capital city and I share Mayor Jones’s commitment to strengthening Richmond’s economy, protecting communities and making sure everyone has equal opportunity in this great city.”
Especially with the current economic situation Virginia is facing, we need a governor who will look out for the best interests of working families. In the early stages of the campaign, and throughout his career in public service, Brian Moran is making a strong case that he is the candidate who will do just that if elected.
