Virginia needs to overturn bills that are aimed at suppressing voting rights, including those that require government-issued photo IDs, to ensure all registered voters have the ability to cast their ballots. I also believe that Virginia needs to work to reduce lines on Election Day by allowing early voting, extending the hours the polls are open, and moving to a system of “no-excuse” absentee voting.
I believe that all Virginians deserve access to affordable healthcare and I support expanding Medicaid and increasing the Medicaid eligibility in Virginia. Physical, mental health, and dental services should be included in the Medicaid expansion. Virginia needs a healthy workforce to ensure a healthy economy.
I support provisions to ensure that working families, especially those in professions essential to the health, safety, and well-being of our communities, can earn a living wage and afford to live in the areas they serve. I also support providing low interest loans with flexible financing for down payment assistance for home buyers. I also support efforts to increase grants to local teachers, police, nurses, and first responders to purchase homes in the area that they are serving.
I will vote yes to a resolution to ratify the E.R.A.
I believe that rail transportation is an important part of Virginia’s transportation portfolio and that the reliability of rail in Virginia needs to be improved. In addition to improved reliability the current infrastructure for Virginia’s rail needs improvement to increase safety.
My priorities are: • Restoring funding for environmental protections and increasing the Commonwealth’s resiliency to climate change.

• Ensuring schools and teachers have the resources they need to fulfill their mission and that teachers make a competitive salary so Virginia can attract and retain the best teachers.

• Protecting the rights of all Virginians to be treated equally by their government, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or country of origin.
