Why Senator Saslaw does not participate in candidate surveys?

While I fully understand the desire to survey candidates on issues of concern, I think it is essential for voters and members of SALT to examine my voting record.  Over the years, I have taken thousands of votes, on a wide range of issues, and I believe the full context of my record in the Senate speaks for itself. Thank you for your advocacy on behalf of the many Virginians who otherwise would not have their voice heard. My door is always open to discuss any issues important to SALT and its members. —Senator Dick Saslaw
