  • Melissa Dart’s Statement on John McGuire’s Refusal to Debate

    HENRICO, VA – Melissa Dart, Democratic candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates in the 56th district, released the following statement in response to John McGuire’s decision to skip the upcoming debate hosted by the Mineral Industrial Development Corporation.

    “I’m disappointed that my opponent has decided not to attend the debate this Thursday,” said Dart. “I am proud to run a campaign focused around the issues that are deeply affecting the residents of the 56th district such as quality education, accessible and affordable healthcare, and a healthy economy where small businesses can thrive. I look forward to talking about these issues and answering questions posed by the residents of the district.”

    Melissa Dart’s Campaign Manager, Anna Brichacek, added, “It is unfortunate that John McGuire feels that he does not need to be held accountable to the voters of the 56th. Neither candidate in this race has held elected office before and voters deserve to hear where they stand. Melissa Dart has shown that she is a candidate who will show up and be responsive to the needs of the district and that is how she’ll serve as delegate.”

    The debate will be held on Thursday, October 19th at 6:30pm at the Louisa County Public Library.
