Virginia House of Delegates District 11

Issues

Stop Virginia Burning
We can have safe communities.  However, the polices and corruption of one-party rule has been devastating to public safety.
Since just last year, we are now seeing riots, cities on fire, looting, and an across-the-board increase in crime. Roanoke’s own mayor, as a member of the parole board, got caught breaking the law and releasing violent criminals back on the streets.
While releasing violent criminals, these one-party ruling elites worked to demoralize and decrease law enforcement.
And if more violent criminals and less police protection weren’t bad enough, the same politicians are working feverishly to reduce our ability as citizens to protect ourselves and our families.
How will this work out?
We already know. In Roanoke alone, homicides are up 400%, Roanoke is now ranked in the top 50 most dangerous cities in the country, and other Virginia cities are ranking as well.
If you elect me as Delegate, I will fight for proper law enforcement and the right of citizens to protect their families.

Start Virginia Learning
There was a time when public education was a valuable community asset.
It gave everyone an opportunity to learn, grow, achieve, and prosper.  Today, Virginia is removing advanced academic classes and replacing excellence with toxic social engineering. These divisive new polices have fostered racism, instigated hate, and endangered our children’s future. Divisive politics has no place in the classroom.
While the elite and powerful people making these decisions can afford alternatives to public education, most average working families do not have that choice. That is wrong.
I will fight to return excellence and achievement to our schools.

Get Virginia Earning
We Virginians need a healthy economy powered by good paying jobs to support our families. Our current economic policy has failed to create those jobs, so the elites in power have focused on forcing entry level jobs to pay better.  This drives up the cost of fuel, food, housing, and other basic needs.
These same elites are taking our tax money – meant for basics like roads, bridges, law enforcement, and education – and spending it on luxuries like Tesla charging stations. Does Roanoke need our potholes fixed or a “green” roof on the Noel C Taylor Building? Do we need more police officers or more public “art”?  Do we need more special ed teachers or more solar-powered trash cans?  This “political grift” must stop.
As Delegate, I will say yes to jobs and prosperity and no to making us “little guys” pay for more  flashy indulgences for the elites.
