Winchester - September 9, 2006 – Wilbur “Bill” Wood, Libertarian candidate for U.S. Congress in Virginia’s Tenth District took his message directly to the voters during Winchester’s annual “Hob Nob in the Valley.”  Wood shared the stage with his opponents Republican Frank Wolf, Democrat Judy Feder, and Independent Neeraj Nigam.

Wood held a rolled copy of the U.S. Constitution in his hand as he addressed the crowd of about 500 voters.  “I truly believe in this document,” said Wood.  “Our Founders created a wonderful instruction manual for our government, but unfortunately our current officials are ignoring it.  I want to change that.”

Wood also highlighted his plan for tax reform.  “I will make the first $20,000 that each American makes tax exempt,” said Wood.  But he won’t stop there.  Wood told voters that he would also exempt any amount of income spent on education and health care.

Many voters walked by the booth and Wood received favorable responses from many of them. 

This Hob Nob is an annual event hosted by the Winchester Chamber of Commerce.  The event is offered as an opportunity for Chamber members and the general public to mix and mingle with elected officials and candidates who will be on the November ballot.  Hob Nob always has a straw poll in which voters can choose their favorite candidates.

Virginia Governor Timothy M. Kaine, and State Attorney Robert F. McDonnell attended this year’s event, as well as U.S. Senator George Allen.
