Letter: Jackson for lieutenant governor
It would be extremely difficult to find a candidate more qualified for office than E.W. Jackson. Bishop Jackson served and was honorably discharged from the U.S. Marines. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with Phi Beta Kappa key from the University of Massachusetts. He graduated from Harvard Law School with Juris Doctor (JD) three years later. Now, I think that is impressive. He then studied theology at Harvard Divinity School and was accepted into the Baptist ministry.
E.W. Jackson taught regulatory law at Northeastern University in Boston. In 1997, he returned to his roots in Virginia. His family history in Virginia goes back to the time of the Revolutionary War. He taught graduate courses in business and commercial law in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake for Strayer University. He devoted himself to full-time ministry and his first book, "Ten Commandments to An Extraordinary Life," was published in 2008.
He is the founder of Exodus Faith Ministries, a non-denominational Christian church in Chesapeake. In 2009, he launched S.T.A.N.D. and, more recently, launched "Exodus Now," encouraging people of moral values within the black community to leave the Democratic Party.
Bishop Jackson managed a gospel radio station for 10 years. He is a pro-life advocate. And he has received numerous awards for his leadership and community service. He and his wife founded the annual Chesapeake MLK Leadership Breakfast. Bishop Jackson also founded "Youth With A Destiny." He is a man of integrity who loves America and its Constitution.
He and his wife of 42 years, Theodora, have three children and reside in Chesapeake. He is the Republican candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia. Add Ken Cuccinelli for Governor and Mark Obenshain for Attorney General and we have a ticket that I can support.
