GUEST OPINION

PENDULUMS DO SWING

Last Tuesday’s elections will change the General Assembly of Virginia. This will make some happy and others not so happy. However, for a great number of people, they will be amazed and possibly shocked with the results.

This year, Virginia was ranked the number one state in which to do business. We will have to wait to see how results will affect those companies looking to expand or come to Virginia.

My guess is that companies will pause to see how the new majority in both the House and Senate behave. They’ll be watching to see if the majority of members will follow the anti-business path that some touted, or if they will modify their thinking now that they have total control of state government. Sometimes -- when one has to take the reigns of power -- they’re less strident than when they were prior to winning leadership roles.
