Statement of Richmond Area Public Safety Leaders on Michael Bloomberg Ad In Virginia 10th District Senate Race
“Those of us who have served in public safety, and live here, know the truth about Glen’s record, his character and his unwavering commitment to keeping Virginia families safe.”
CHESTERFIELD- A number of Richmond-area public safety leaders issued the following statement tonight regarding a new television ad from a group created by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg that says: “He’ll (Glen Sturtevant) make Virginia families less safe.”
“All of us have served the Commonwealth in public safety positions. We are all dedicated to keeping Virginia families and communities safe. That is why we are so offended by this new attack ad from billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Glen Sturtevant is the father of three beautiful little children, all under the age of five. He is committed to ensuring they grow up in a Commonwealth where they, and all children, will be happy and secure. As a School Board member he has worked tirelessly to help improve Richmond’s public schools. He also has family members who have been personally touched by some of the most tragic shootings in our recent history.
Glen cares about the people of the 10th District. He’s running to make our entire Commonwealth safer and stronger. He’s a friend of law enforcement and our brave men and women in uniform. That’s why all of us, who live here in the Richmond area unlike Mayor Bloomberg, have endorsed Glen for State Senate.
Shame on Mayor Bloomberg for spending his money trying to mislead the residents of Chesterfield, Richmond and Powhatan. Mayor Bloomberg is wrong. Those of us who have served in public safety and live here know the truth about Glen’s record, his character and his unwavering commitment to keeping Virginia families safe.”
