Northern Virginia Technology Council Statement on the 2013 Virginia Gubernatorial Race

HERNDON, Va. – September 16, 2013 – The Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) announced today that the organization is not endorsing a candidate in Virginia’s gubernatorial race.

TechPAC, an independent, non-partisan committee of NVTC, voted on September 12 to endorse Ken Cuccinelli for Governor of Virginia by a majority of its voting trustees present. NVTC acknowledges and respects TechPAC’s endorsement process, which was deliberative, transparent and consistent with TechPAC’s bylaws.

The TechPAC endorsement, however, may not in itself reflect the views of NVTC’s membership. Given the deeply divided opinions of the NVTC membership concerning this race, NVTC is making no endorsement in the gubernatorial election.
