Jim GilmoreHe’s been busy hitting the campaign trail both in his bid for the U.S. Senate and on behalf of the McCain-Palin ticket. But Jim Gilmore, who served as Virginia’s attorney general and later governor, recently sat down for a candid interview with ExecutiveBiz. In the following Q&A, Gilmore talks about the issues he’d tackle as Virginia’s next senator, as well as his response to three key issues on the minds of Virginia’s business community: gas prices, taxes, and the union check card.

What issues would you would focus on if elected Virginia“™s next senator?

Jim Gilmore: We certainly want the participation of the contracting community.  The philosophy behind this is that that work can be done cheaper and more efficiently if private business people are involved in a way to make their services effective and efficient for the United States government.  That“™s what the classic outsourcing philosophy is and I support that.  We obviously want to make sure  we have good competition in that area and that there is good oversight on behalf of the public.  We want to avoid all of these allegations you see from these Washington politicians  trying to exploit the situation that say that somehow it is all “pork barrel“ or it“™s all “earmarks“ or it“™s all special interest groups.  We want to make sure  the public is being well served and the best way to do that is to have proper oversight and accountability.  Again that is a key point.
