In sum, if you want clean water, healthy rivers, a thriving Chesapeake Bay, etc., then DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES vote for any of the aforementioned Republican'ts. In stark contrast, vote for Democrats like Bobby Scott (Grade of "A+"), Jim Moran (Grade of "A+"), and Gerry Connolly (Grade of "A+), as well as any other Democrat on the ballot. Sad to say, but that's the way it is these days: our environment, which should NEVER have been politicized, has become completely polarized between Republicans (in the pocket of polluters, science deniers, etc.) and Democrats (not perfect, but infinitely better). Sigh...
