RICHMOND, Va. — Freedom Virginia today criticized Riley Shaia for stating her support for cutting taxes for corporations in Virginia during a Sept. 18 candidate forum.
“Lining the pockets of big corporations through costly corporate tax handouts, at the expense of funding our public schools, is something both voters and the legislature rejected this year. Yet Riley Shaia is doubling down on her support for policies that prioritize special interests over working families and schools,” said Freedom Virginia Executive Director Rhena Hicks. “If given the opportunity, it is clear that Shaia would vote in favor of tax cuts for big corporations instead of funding Henrico County public schools. We cannot allow Shaia to be elected to the House of Delegates.”
