GOP Governor Glenn Youngkin Steps Up For Veterans With His Own Cash

Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin doesn’t just talk the talk, he’s walking the walk.

On Wednesday, he announced he was donating his salary to a worth cause and fulfilling one of his campaign promises.

Governor Youngkin announced he will donate his second-quarter salary to the Virginia Veterans Services Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing supplemental funding for Veteran programs and services throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.  

“I pledged to serve our Commonwealth without accepting a salary because I want to continue giving back to the Commonwealth and helping Virginians in every way I can,” said Governor Glenn Youngkin. 

“I have chosen to donate my salary to the Virginia Veterans Services Foundation (VVSF) because of their important mission to support Virginia’s veterans’ programs. My administration goes to work every day to reimagine the way the Commonwealth provides Veterans benefits, eliminate red tape that hinders our veterans, and has exempted the first 40,000 of veteran retirement pay from unnecessary taxes. Now, Suzanne and I would like to show our support and gratitude for those who have fought to keep our Commonwealth and nation safe,” he continued.

Youngkin’s approval rating amongst Virginians has been hovering around 50%.
