Patricia Phillips, Republican candidate for the 33rd Senate district has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge sponsored by Americans for Tax Reform (ATR).  The Pledge is a commitment to constituents to “oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes.”

To date, twenty-nine members of the Virginia legislature have signed the Pledge.  Additionally, 13 governors and over 1,250 state legislators across the country have signed the Pledge.

“Virginia taxpayers need leaders committed to fiscal responsibility and pro-growth economic policies,” said Grover Norquist, president of ATR.  “By signing the Pledge, Patricia demonstrates that she understands the problems of hard-working taxpayers in the 33rd district and around the Commonwealth.”

ATR encourages candidates and sitting legislators who have not signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge to make this commitment to taxpayers.  More on the Pledge can be found here.    

“I applaud Patricia Phillips for her leadership and dedication to the ideals of limited government, and for putting taxpayers’ wallets ahead of government coffers,” added Norquist.
