Hurt Tours Crozet Lumber Company

Posted: Updated:

Congressman Robert Hurt spent Tuesday morning at a Crozet lumber yard to talk about the "pain at the pump" and the strength of business in Albemarle County.

The 5th District representative got a full tour of the R.A. Yancey Lumber Corporation.

Hurt said there is no way the commonwealth or the country will get out of the recession with gas prices so steep. However, he said when the House offered solutions, those ideas were shot down by both the Senate and White House.

"Being able to be here and talk to folks who are directly impacted by these adverse policies is something that I carry back to Washington with me and it helps, I think, make the case for a sensible domestic energy policy," said Hurt.

Hurt also talked a little bit of politics. He stands by his record for work employment, energy, and eliminating debt heading into November. He says voters should be wary of his competitors' talking points.
