Virginia House District 25

The Virginia House of Delegates is one of two parts in the Virginia General Assembly, the other being the Senate of Virginia. It has 100 members elected for terms of two years; unlike most states, these elections take place during odd-numbered years. The House is presided over by the Speaker of the House, who is elected from among the House membership by the Delegates. The Speaker is usually a member of the majority party and, as Speaker, becomes the most powerful member of the House. The House shares legislative power with the Senate of Virginia, the upper house of the Virginia General Assembly. The House of Delegates is the modern-day successor to the Virginia House of Burgesses, which first met at Jamestown in 1619. The House is divided into Democratic and Republican caucuses. In addition to the Speaker, there is a majority leader, majority caucus chair, minority leader, minority caucus chair, and the chairs of the several committees of the House.

Ending gerrymandering and banning corporate campaign contributions are the most important changes we can make to restore trust and transparency back into the electoral process. I also believe forms of voter suppression are there with ID laws for those who have trouble getting their paperwork and time and transportation to the DMV for IDs. We should have no excuse and early access voting. Voting period should be longer and there should be more online access to voting without leaving work/home
Medicaid Expansion was hard working Virginian taxpayer money that went to help finance other states. We need those 10.4 billion dollars to be working for Virginians health care. We should increase ACA Medicaid coverage and have it include Mental/behavioral health and addiction and take away incarceration as an ineffective means of acting as a deterrent. We need to streamline the pharmaceutical costs and have early diagnosis of mental/behavioral problems cover treatment & behavioral modification
I think we need to look at the lopsided tax structure equivalent in our state. The top income earners pay less percentage wise than the middle or low-income earners. Cutting income is being discussed and will translate to more taxes being taken disproportionately from the middle and low class by regressive small taxes like meal tax, cell phone, fees, tolls, gas tax, storm drain tax and others similar to those that pick the pockets of the working that already pay more and receive less.
