Dave Marsden, candidate for the Virginia State Senate in the 37th District recently sent out a direct mail piece to voters that was a little misleading. Misleading…how so? Well, the mailing claimed that Marsden was a low-tax stalwart. What this mailer failed to mention was that Marsden has quite the penchant for supporting massive tax increases.
Marsden voted in 2008 for a $2 billion tax increase, and this tax increase would have made it more costly to buy a home or a car, and would have increased the sales tax in Northern Virginia (even though, Northern Virginia would have received less in return from Richmond). Source: SB 6009
How will Marsden (who didn’t even live in the district until he recently decided to rent a room) be good on tax policies, when his record as a member of the House of Delegates proves otherwise?
