The top priority for my district, and for the entire Commonwealth, is to ensure everyone has access to affordable quality health care, and reasonably-priced prescription drugs. Medicaid expansion was an important first step but we must do more to ensure no Virginian chooses between food on the table and necessary medication. I am on the board of Rx Partners that helps provide affordable medication to families. I have seen the frightening decisions families face.
We need to sufficiently fund election apparatus to ensure thate we have sufficient precincts without exceedingly long lines, sufficient staff for those precincts and paper ballot back up. I also support no excuse absentee voting, and elimination of gerrymandering.
Yes, I support fair redistricting where voters select their representatives and not the other way around. I would support any legislation that ensure fair non-partisan redistricting and works to create compact districts with communities of interest and ensures minority voters get the voice they deserve.
Yes, I support the ERA and would be happy to introduce it, vote for it and advocate for it.
I believe in universal background checks, safe storage laws, and high risk laws (so-called red flag laws) to start. It is astounding that event the lowest hanging measures to address gun safety have been blocked time and again.
Affordable housing is very important to reduce the density of poverty. First of all, we need to ensure that all our public schools are top notch so people who can afford to cluster where there are better public schools do not feel compelled to do so. The state needs to give localities the tools they need to encourage affordable housing. Localities should be able to advocate for affordable housing from developers working in their jursdiction.
