I am a member of the Privileges and Elections Committee and spoke out in committee when my colleagues refused to take a vote on these issues. I Co-Patroned HJ 628. I continue to be frustrated that we could not get any bill dealing with redistricting to a house floor vote during the 2017 session. I support the efforts of the nonpartisan group Virginia 2021.

We should fully fund our State and local BOEs ensuring that resources are available to make our systems run smoothly, that the technology is up to date so that we are adequately prepared to ensure secure and accessible voting.  Too many times we see equipment break down on election day and this leads to long lines. Registrars and other county election staff are often overwhelmed by the huge number of registrations and inquiries received before elections.
Using Public Private Partnerships has also saved the Commonwealth millions of dollars on the major projects. Continuing multimodal options to reduce congestion. One change that would benefit residents in Loudoun and Western Fairfax along the toll roads would be to reduce tolls and institute an additional gas tax, index it for inflation, setting a floor. Many residents in our region pay upwards of $200 per month to get to and from work in tolls. This is an unfair burden.
We need to diversify and expand the Virginia Economy and to train and enable the next generation of Virginians to take the 21st-century jobs.  To achieve these goals we must provide access to first-rate public education at all levels, health care, and maintain an efficient transportation system.  We must be a welcoming community for all. I will also continue to focus on issues surrounding women's equality as well as redistricting reform to end political gerrymandering.
