Creating new jobs and re-invigorating our workforce will be a top priority for as your Delegate."

Excerpt: "As an optometrist, Roxann has seen ﬁrsthand the problems with our healthcare system. The endless bureaucratic red tape only gets in the way of a patient and his or her doctor. These problems will only grow worse because of the President’s healthcare reform. To improve our healthcare system, Roxann will support free market reforms, not more government regulations. Decisions on healthcare should be between a patient and doctor – not the patient and a government bureaucrat. Roxann will support Governor McDonnell and Attorney General Cuccinelli’s efforts to ﬁght national healthcare legislation."
