I'm Joining the Bowerbank Campaign

I believe that the race for Lt. Governor is one that deserves the public's attention. The office of Lt. Governor might not be the most glamorous one on the statewide ticket, but it’s a position that can truly help move our Commonwealth forward if the right person is elected. With so much at stake during this election, I strongly believe Jon Bowerbank is the best candidate for the job.

I’ve gotten to know Jon over the last year as he’s built his grassroots campaign from the ground up and I have seen firsthand how passionate about serving his community. I’ve heard him speak, for instance, about how he will work to improve our public school systems and make higher education more accessible for students from all economic backgrounds. I’ve heard him speak about his experience creating hundreds of jobs through the company he started in Southwest Virginia and how he wants to take his leadership to the Lt. Governor’s office to help create jobs for Virginians all across the Commonwealth. And I’ve heard him speak about how his knowledge of the ever advancing field of energy can help Virginia become a leader on creating green jobs and cleaner sources of energy.

Jon has the experience, the passion, and the vision to help move Virginia forward if he’s elected. With the June 9th Democratic primary rapidly approaching, I want to do my part in letting the public know why Jon Bowerbank should be our next Lt. Governor. I have therefore decided to take a position on the campaign team as the New Media Director. For several years I have used my blogs as a way to provide the public with accurate information and promote a productive discussion. This will continue to be an essential aspect of my blogging as I move into my new role with the Bowerbank campaign.


  1. Congratulations, and good luck!

  2. Glad to see he's bringing on someone who really is committed to grassroots politics. Hope you bring some of that community organizing mentality with you to this position.

  3. Best of luck Bryan; Jon Bowerbank made a wise decision to bring you on board his campaign.


  4. There could be no better investment in America than to invest in America becoming energy independent! We need to utilize everything in out power to reduce our dependence on foreign oil including using our own natural resources. Create cheap clean energy, new badly needed green jobs and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.The high cost of fuel this past year seriously damaged our economy and society. The cost of fuel effects every facet of consumer goods from production to shipping costs. It costs the equivalent of 60 cents per gallon to charge and drive an electric car. If all gasoline cars, trucks, and SUV's instead had plug-in electric drive trains the amount of electricity needed to replace gasoline is about equal to the estimated wind energy potential of the state of North Dakota.We have so much available to us such as wind and solar. Let's spend some of those bail out billions and get busy harnessing this energy. Create cheap clean energy, badly needed new jobs and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. What a win-win situation that would be for our nation at large! There is a really good new book out by Jeff Wilson called The Manhattan Project of 2009 Energy Independence Now.
