HERNDON, Va., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The TechPAC Board of Trustees voted to endorse Ken Cuccinelli by a majority of its voting trustees present following in-depth, in-person interviews with each major party candidate. During the interview process, technology business leaders discussed the candidates' campaign platforms, proposals and positions relating to specific issues in the technology business agenda of the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC).
"The TechPAC Board of Trustees concluded that Ken Cuccinelli's experience in Virginia government, command of the issues, and knowledge of key technology priorities will serve him well as Governor in working to ensure the Commonwealth remains a competitive and innovative global technology center," said Dendy Young, TechPAC Chairman and CEO of McLean Capital, LLC.
TechPAC members are highly sensitive to the divisive nature of this particular gubernatorial campaign, and the attending underlying social issues. "Cuccinelli assured TechPAC Trustees during the interview process that his administration will focus on jobs and the economy, and not on a divisive social agenda, which TechPAC believes would seriously hurt the appeal of Virginia as a place to locate and grow businesses. Cuccinelli also committed to preserving and efficiently implementing the transportation funding legislation passed by the General Assembly earlier this year," Young stated.
Launched by the Northern Virginia Technology Council in 2001, TechPAC is governed by a 27-member Board of Trustees that includes prominent business leaders representing many of the largest and well-known technology businesses in the region as well as the smaller entrepreneurial businesses that help drive Northern Virginia's technology economy. TechPAC identifies and supports General Assembly candidates throughout the state, as well as those candidates for governor and attorney general, whose positions, policies and initiatives they believe best reflect the priorities and interests of Northern Virginia's technology community.
TechPAC endorsement decisions are based on the issues and priorities articulated in the Northern Virginia Technology Council's Policy Agenda (www.nvtc.org/advocacy/). For more information on TechPAC visit www.nvtctechpac.org.
