My name is Dan Foster and I’m running for Delegate in the 78th district of Chesapeake in this November’s general elections.
I am not a lawyer, I’ve never run for a political office before, I have never been associated with any branch of our government, I am just a regular man who is sick and tired of the way our current government is being run.

Politicians will always tell you what you want to hear to get your vote. “Read my lips, no new taxes!” They do this until they’re in office, then its time to pay back the big contributors to their parties election campaign …. then they often pay it back with the taxpayers money.
