Mumpower statement on Roanoke Times rescinding endorsement

Roanoke –Today, The Roanoke Times stated “Authenticity in a politician is very rare and very valuable. That’s true. Which is why it is so disappointing to catch Habeeb telling us one thing then turning around and doing the exact opposite days before the election…. as a result of that blatant display of inauthenticity, we hereby withdraw our endorsement of Habeeb in the 8th District.”

Mumpower stated “there is a clear choice in this election. Voters can choose to elect a leader they trust and respect. I think I offer that clear distinction. For nearly 30 years I have been a small business woman and active in the Roanoke community. I believe I have the values and commitment to be a Delegate in Richmond the 8th District expects and deserves.”

The special election for the 8th House of Delegates race will occur on Tuesday, January 11th.
