Pete Snyder Responds to CDC findings of ‘scant spread of coronavirus spread in schools’

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA — Conservative outsider and Republican candidate for governor of Virginia Pete Snyder today responded to the CDC’s findings of ’scant spread of coronavirus spread in schools.’

“Despite the fact that science says our schools can and should open, career politicians refuse to stand up to the union bosses and are holding our children hostage,” said Pete Snyder. “Instead of following the science, Democrats prefer to line their pockets with special interest money for political, partisan gain. We need a disruptor to break up the status quo and bring new leadership to Richmond.”

Washington Post reported today,

“The conclusion here is with proper prevention efforts . . . we can keep transmission in schools and educational settings quite low,” said Margaret A. Honein, the lead author of the JAMA report. “We didn’t know that at the beginning of the year but the data has really accumulated.”

“With good prevention, we can safely reopen and keep open more schools,” said Honein, lead for the CDC State and Local Health Department Covid Task Force.”

Pete Snyder announced his candidacy for Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia in January 2021. Pete is a small business champion and conservative political outsider committed to exposing the systemic incompetence in Richmond and disrupting the status quo. Pete is a small business owner, an innovator, and a problem solver. A true pioneer, Pete started his first company, New Media Strategies, the first social media marketing company in the country, when he was 26 years old. Over the years, as an angel capital investor and CEO of Disruptor Capital, Pete has helped found and grow many small businesses in Virginia and across the country.

When those in charge in Richmond failed to lead us during this pandemic, Pete and his wife Burson stepped up. Together and with the help of friends and neighbors the Snyders created the Virginia 30 Day Fund, a zero-overhead, non-profit organization that has helped save more than 1,000 small businesses across Virginia and more than 2,500 small businesses across America. Their 30 Day Fund efforts have raised more than $40 million to date, and every single dime of that goes to help keep hard working heroes afloat and their small business dreams alive. This is the very kind of new leadership, new energy and innovative thinking Pete will bring to Richmond to restore common sense and get Virginia leading again.

Pete, who has been a World Championship level certified BBQ judge (which the Washington Post’s Politifact rated as “100% True”), is the proud owner of Pete’s Pig Rig, the most infamous BBQ smoker in the Commonwealth. Pete, his wife Burson, his six-year-old daughter Bee, and their puppies Willie and Waylon live in Charlottesville, Virginia.
