Tripp Godsey to be endorsed by Roanoke Tea Party

Tripp Godsey

Monday at 6:00 p.m. the Roanoke Tea Party will meet at Trip Godsey’s headquaarters, 3407 Brambleton Ave. Members will vote on endorsement. The board is recommending endorsement. Greg Aldridge, who serves as public relations for the Roanoke Tea Party is Godsey’s campaign manager.

Godsey hit his August 23 Republican primary opponent Delegate Dave Nutter on his vote for abusive driver fees. “Creating abusive fees for traffic violations that only apply to Virginia citizens in an effort to keep from dealing with road funding in a reasonable manner is inexcusable,” said Godsey.

He has also attacked Nutter for supporting house bill 3202. ”Urban Development Areas” in  comprehensive plans rather than letting localities decide for themselves how to manage their land. A big issue with Tea Party members who claim the U.N. Agenda 21/ICLEI is a worldwide planning  process that addresses local sustainable development.

Nutter later recanted by voting against both but Godsey blames him for not reading or understanding what he was voting on the first time.

Both Nutter and Godsey hope to oust 16-year Democratic incumbent Virginia State Senator John Edwards.
