Governor Jim Gilmore says he leaves a record of accomplishment as he leaves office.
Gilmore delivered his farewell speech last night in his final State of the Commonwealth address.
He turns over the Governor's office to Mark Warner on Saturday.
Gilmore will be remembered as the man who cut the car tax. But as Joe Dashiell reports, he made the case that the lasting legacy of his administration is not just a single policy or program.

17-year-old Billy Ray Manns is now facing a possible death sentence in connection with the murder of a woman he barely knew.
In September of 2000, Lisa Thomas was gunned down in front of her children inside the clothing store she ran with her husband.
In a preliminary hearing, Manns' friends said the teenager bragged about killing Thomas.
His stepsister said he claimed he shot her "four or five times" and he "was going to get paid for it."
Attorneys from both sides grilled Thomas' husband, Maverick Muhammad, on the stand for an hour and a half.
He told them he did not kill his wife or hire Manns to do it.
Manns' attorneys contend that Muhammad tested positive for gunpowder residue. ((MARYA JONES/NEWS-7: Prosecutors and defense attorneys declined to discuss the case any further.
But prosecutors have said before that this was a murder for hire.
To this day, Manns remains the only person charged in connection with the crime.
He'll be transferred from juvenile detention to an adult jail as he awaits trial. Marya Jones, News7, Martinsville.))))
