  • Getting Our Students Into VA Colleges

Excerpt: "Dave is working to get your children into Virginia colleges. Dave was able to get UVA, William and Mary, JMU and Virginia Tech to add hundreds of new in-state slots over the next three years."

  • Dave Albo stands up for NoVa!

Excerpt: "Dave Albo led the fight to successfully kill the 2008 transportation tax increase, which raised your taxes and then gave you only 30 cents for every road repair dollar you paid. ...Dave Albo fought the 2004 tax increase, which raised your sales taxes for schools but gave you only 30 cents for every dollar you spent."
