Campaign themes


Garvey's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • The Economy
Excerpt: "Northern Virginia is the economic engine of our Commonwealth, but there are so many ways we can make it stronger. Creating a strong economy does not just have to mean creating a “business friendly” atmosphere through tax breaks and corporate giveaways."
  • Transportation

  • Education
Excerpt: "As your next senator, education funding in Virginia will always be protected. Investing in our children’s education is the best investment we can make, even in the toughest economy."
  • The Environment
Excerpt: "Virginia should be creating better energy efficiency standards, including retrofitting state buildings with new technology to save energy and more funding for mass transit. "
  • Good Government and Civil Rights
Excerpt: "As your next senator, I will work to make our state government accountable by proposing new reforms that will ensure high ethical standards in our politicians."


Garvey is widowed and has two daughters.
