The legislative redistricting process in Virginia should be transparent, impartial and conducted by an independent commission based on non-partisan, objective criteria. I believe voters should be choosing their representatives instead of politicians choosing their voters. As a member of the Privileges and Elections Committee, I have supported legislation to prohibit the use of political data or election results in the redistricting process.
I have a strong record of supporting the removal of any voting requirement that makes it harder for registered citizens of the Commonwealth to vote. This includes onerous and unnecessary ID requirements and limits on absentee voting. I believe we need to streamline and expand absentee voting across Virginia - providing more opportunities to exercise our right to vote for our representatives.
We need to make strategic, long-term investments that focus on regional projects that cut down on congestion and ease the transport of goods and services. I support innovative solutions to our funding constraints that minimize the economic impact felt by taxpayers, including public-private partnerships, to increase the availability of funds. I believe we are not getting our fair share of state transportation funding and would support increased funding at the state level for regional programs.
As a representative of the 34th House district my main focus is on the issues important to my constituents. I have been working hard to ensure our students have access to world class education, to reduce congestion on our roads and invest in regional transportation projects, to strengthen our regional economy, and to keep our families and children safe.
