Right now politicians are picking their voters, instead of voters picking their politicians. It's a direct threat to our democracy and it has to stop. I will work with anyone, Republican, Democrat, or Independent to make sure the needs of our citizens always come before political interest. I believe we must establish a non-partisan redistricting process that is fair, objective, and unbiased.
I believe the business of government shouldn't be done behind closed doors. Transparency for the public is just as, if not more, important for the work done in committees and subcommittees as the work that happens on the floor. I've always been an adamant advocate for openness and will continue to sponsor legislation to make our government more open, free, and fair.
One of Governor McAuliffe’s priorities this last session was mental health, and I believe investing in mental health is a key to improving behavioral health services here in Virginia. Regarding the opioid epidemic, I believe that mental health is still a key player and that we need to take a closer look at the measures in place for prescribing addictive drugs to treat other symptoms.
The Chesapeake Bay is the lifeblood of not only our community, but the entire state of Virginia. I will continue to always support legislation that make our Bay and conservation generally a priority. I will stand up for clean air, clean water, and preventing the effects of climate change.
First, a priority of mine is ensuring universal pre-K education for all children in the Commonwealth. Once that is accomplished, the next step would be ensuring that reading education is integrated into the pre-K curriculum so that all students are given the same opportunities to be successful.
A big legislative priority of mine is remedying the school-to-prison pipeline issue that we see here in Virginia. Virginia is 50th out of 50 states for referrals of students to law enforcement, and that’s something that needs to change. I will continue to put forth legislation that attempts to do just that. I am also focused on Medicaid expansion, bringing jobs to our community, and protecting women’s health care decisions.
