Issues

Campaign themes

2013

Tidwell’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

  • Transportation

Excerpt: "From absurd daily congestion on our roadways and highways to substandard and unreliable mass transit, Northern Virginians are subjected to delays and frustration. As Delegate, I will propose a plan to alter the way transportation is funded across the Commonwealth to ensure every area is getting appropriate funding for their roads. This means looking at transportation funding from a new angle; not an angle of partisan politics or political favors, but through the lens of what the people of Virginia need."

  • Education

Excerpt: "Having been home schooled until 10th grade and then transitioning to public school, I understand the decisions parents and students make about the best course of action for each child. As Delegate, I will fight to give parents the tools they need to make solid educational choices for their children. I’m a solid supporter of our public schools – some of the best in the nation – and will continue to support the schools, administrators, teachers, and, most of all, the students in the General Assembly."

  • Healthcare

Excerpt: " As Delegate, I will support common sense solutions to make private healthcare insurance more affordable to everyone. I support the General Assembly’s decision to form a panel to study the expansion of Medicaid so that Virginia can make responsible decisions that are good for Virginia families."

  • Veterans

Excerpt: "From jobs to healthcare, our veterans deserve the best our Commonwealth has to offer. As Delegate, caring for our women and men in uniform will never be pushed to the back burner. I will stand in full support of programs like the Veterans Services’ Virginia Values Veterans Program, or V3, that has provided over 4,000 jobs to Virginia’s veterans."

  • Transparency

Excerpt: "Every aspect of the government should be freely available online for taxpayers to see. Virginians have a right to know how their tax dollars are spent. After all, it is your money, not the government’s. By making the actions in the General Assembly more easily accessible, you can track your tax dollars just like you track your family budget."
