"It will be interesting to hear Saslaw’s ideas about the problem. It’s baffled many brilliant people in the area and stifled some of the hardest-working citizens. It’s good to hear the senator speak up with a fresh and frank voice."

"Thank you for your advocacy that resulted in this welcomed addition to the array of services in our state's aging network."
"Dear Senator Saslaw,
Without your leadership during this past session we would never have accomplished what we did for public education. The veto session was further evidence of that. 95% of our "bad bills" were either defeated in committee, on the floor, or through the sustained veto.
"On behalf of thousands of college students across the Commonwealth, we want to thank you for the incredibly positive steps the General Assembly took this year to address funding for higher education.
Virginia21 and our members across the commonwealth thank you sincerely for your leadership on this issue, your support for students, and for your vote of confidence in Virginia's public higher education system."
"The Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association recognizes Senator Dick Saslaw for his leadership, advocacy, and dedication to the mission of VHHA in his community and the Virginia General Assembly."
"Senator Saslaw fully understands how to get results in Richmond. The sheriff's always count on him to cut right through all the rhetoric and expose an accurate picture of the status on any situation. When he speaks, I always am thinking 'OK here goes the real story.' Thanks Senator Saslaw for a job well done."
