Congressional candidate is coming to Middlesex

imageBill Day, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in the First District of Virginia, is coming to Middlesex County on Friday, Sept. 5, to meet and greet voters in this part of the district. 

Citizens are invited to come and spend time getting to know Day, and let him know what solutions they are looking for in Washington.

Day will arrive at noon on September 5 at 1410 Flats Road at Remlik near Urbanna. Call 758-1585 for directions.

Day currently resides in Fauquier County just outside of Warrenton. He is a father of two daughters, Alexis, 25, and Ivey, 21. 

Day earned his bachelor’s degree in construction from Arizona State University in 1974. He continued his education and received his MBA from Harvard in 1983 and went back for a master’s degree in counseling from West Virginia State University in 1991. He is a successful entrepreneur with over 40 years of business experience.

With a history of public service, Day said he is excited to have the chance to represent First Congressional District voters in Washington and to bring about change for the country as a whole. Day said he chose to run for office because he felt that people of this district needed a voice in Washington that would stand up for them and take a pro-active role in policy making.

Day said he is tired of seeing special interests and partisan politics receive priority over the real issues facing Americans. Over the years, Day said he has fought hard for the issues he believes in, and will continue to do so in Washington.

He has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and has also worked with the disabled. After Hurricane Katrina, Day made several trips to volunteer in Mississippi with the Gulf Coast Relief efforts. He also serves as an active member of his church, most recently traveling to South Carolina to build houses. He also is an active environmentalist, as a member of the Sierra Club and as the League of Conservation Voters point person for the area.
