Senior Statesmen of Virginia, 23 May 2015 [cached]
Senator Creigh Deeds (D) and Delegate David Toscano (D) provided their perspectives on the issues that came before the 2014 Virginia legislature at our May 14, 2014 meeting.
Senator Creigh Deeds Senator Creigh Deeds (D) represents the 25th Senate District, which includes the counties of Alleghany, Albemarle (part), Bath, Highland, Nelson, and Rockbridge, and the cities of Buena Vista, Charlottesville, Covington, and Lexington. He serves on five Senate standing committees: Transportation (Chair); Finance; General Laws and Technology; Privileges and Elections; and Rules. He was first elected to the House of Delegates in 1991, winning reelection five consecutive times before leaving the House to fill the seat of the late Senator Emily Couric in a special election in 2001. He was the Democratic nominee for state Attorney General in 2005, losing that race by the closest margin in Virginia history and was the Democratic nominee for Governor in 2009.
Both Senator Deeds and Delegate Toscano emphasized that service in the General Assembly is a part-time job with full-time responsibilities, and the members have to work for a living, and so sometimes there are things they can't attend because of other responsibilities and the need to pay their bills, and so some of the legislators who aren't here, can't be here.
Senator Deeds noted that the legislative session is still in session. The regular session ended the second Saturday in March, but they are required to pass a two-year budget and if the budget is not in place by July 1, we will be in absolutely unchartered water. Senator Deeds has been there for 23 sessions and as Virginians, he said we can be very proud of the legislative process, and what happens here happened first - in 1619. But the process has become more partisan.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch had an interesting interview with Creigh Deeds, who lost the 2009 Governor's race to Bob McDonnell.
The interview merely displayed that Deeds is still taking the loss pretty hard.
In the weeks after the election, Deeds, 52, hasn't spent a night outside his home in rural Bath County. Public appearances have been rare - a couple of visits to Charlottesville, a Christmas shopping trip to Roanoke, a drive to attend a funeral.
Instead, Deeds has set to work rebuilding the life he left behind when he became a candidate - resurrecting a dormant law practice, repairing fences on the family farm, getting a cranky stove to provide warmth on a winter's day in the Allegheny Mountains.
"The toll on my family . . . there are things I'll never get back and that hurts a whole lot," he said. "A lot of personal stuff that I'm just not going to go into.
"Going forward, I've got a responsibility to represent people in the state Senate and rebuild a life that I had, that I have left," he said. "There's still a lot of figuring out to do. I've got to get back to basics.
Also, in the interview, Deeds did not mention whether or not he was running for re-election in 2011 for the state senate seat he currently holds. Hopefully, this will not intervene with his ability to serve the people of Charlottesville and Bath County.

"The Fixie" was awarded to the best campaign of 2009 to Bob McDonnell and the worst campaign to Creigh Deeds.
Meanwhile, Deeds was called out on his campaign strategy, which relied on his focus of targeting rural voters, rather than the core constituencies of the Commonwealth (namely Hampton Roads and Northern Virginia) and for talking about his opponent's thesis from grad school instead of focusing on why he should have been elected.
