Judy Feder on Frank Wolf

From an interview I did with Judy Feder back in April 2006, this seems as relevant today as it was then:
RK Question: What are your main criticisms of Frank Wolf, the current (Republican) Representative from the 10th District? How do you plan to defeat a popular, entrenched incumbent like Wolf? And how would you respond to Jim Moran's comments that you "would make a wonderful Congresswoman," that he would be "hard pressed to work against Frank Wolf?"

Judy Feder: The question voters will answer on November 7th is simple: do they want the status quo - clogged roads, unaffordable education and health care - or are they ready for a change? I am ready for a change.

Frank Wolf has been in office for 26 years; the district's changed, and he hasn't. While he's been in office, our roads have grown clogged with traffic, health care costs have skyrocketed, our green space is disappearing, and college education has become almost unaffordable for many families. The world is more dangerous, and, as we saw with Hurricane Katrina, our government remains unable to keep our communities safe.

Virginia's 10th District, like the rest of America, wants a change in the status quo. We want leaders that will put our families first, focus on new priorities while solving our problems, and get the country back on the right track.
