David Yancey, Republican candidate for the state's House of Delegates District, issued a jobs plan this week saying he'll "work with Gov. McDonnell to make Virginia the most business friendly state in the country."
"As a small business owner and entrepreneur, I understand the needs of businesses to grow and create jobs. Businesses need a stable regulatory environment that encourages investment and growth," Yancey said.
Yancey's jobs plan calls for the lowering of taxes on families and businesses; expanding the governor's "business friendly" agenda; promoting affordable energy; modernizing the region's transportation network and promoting tax credits for businesses.
Yancey in running for the seat vacated at the end of August by longtime delegate Glenn Oder, R-Newport News, who left the House to take over as head of the Fort Monroe Authority. Yancey is running against Democratic candidate Gary West, a Newport News attorney.
Here is Yancey's jobs plan in it's entirety as released this week:
