“voter guide” for House of Delegates

Brent Finnegan -- November 1st, 2007

I’ve posted the ballots, as well as a “voter guide” for State Senate, so here’s another “voter guide” for House of Delegates.

Republican incumbent Matt Lohr is being challenged by Carolyn Frank, an independent. Here’s a map of the 26th House district. As you can see, it’s much smaller than the 26th Senate district. It’s only the city and the northern part of Rockingham County.

Matt Lohr:

Lohr has a background in farming and motivational speaking. Here are the bills Lohr introduced last session, along with his voting record (Excel file). According to VPAP, Lohr’s top 5 campaign contributors come from the health care, “political,” real estate/construction, energy, and finance/insurance industries. Here’s a list of references about Lohr on hburgnews.

According to his website, Lohr supported the marriage amendment, as well as legislation “requiring as a component of informed consent to an abortion, every pregnant female shall be given the opportunity to view an ultrasound image of her unborn child prior to the abortion.” He also says he is working “to provide disincentives to those who enter our country illegally.”

Carolyn Frank:

Frank is a communications technician at Verizon, and is an elected member of Harrisonburg’s City Council. If you wish to see how she voted on issues in City Council, you can check the minutes. According to VPAP, Frank only has two official campaign contributors. Here’s a list of references about Frank on hburgnews.

Frank’s website was never finished, but it’s clear from her campaign signs that she opposes the “abusive driver fees,” which her opponent voted to create. On the issue of immigration, Frank has said, “The only thing that we can do as a local body and a general assembly is basically deal with the issues of illegal immigration, we cannot halt illegal immigration.”
