Filler-Corn’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Excerpt: "Again this year, our region was ranked as having the worst traffic congestion in the entire country, and the situation is becoming worse every year. To face this challenge directly, I joined with 59 of my House colleagues (35 Republicans and 24 Democrats) to help pass a comprehensive transportation package that will allow us to move forward in alleviating congestion, repairing deteriorated pavement conditions, and constructing needed new roadways."
- Budget and Medicaid Expansion
Excerpt: "On the final day of this year’s legislative session, the House of Delegates and State Senate approved the Budget bill, by passing amendments to the biennial budget. It was truly a historic moment in the Virginia General Assembly, as we agreed on a way forward to expand Medicaid coverage to nearly an additional 400,000 Virginians desperately in need of adequate health care options."
Excerpt: "Part of Governor McDonnell’s education reform plan to label schools with letter grades, and creating a statewide entity to take over schools designated as failing, was approved by the General Assembly without my support. My bill, HB 2199 did not advance from the House Appropriations Committee after being referred by the Education Committee. This bill was intended to increase the numbers of students eligible for expedited retakes of the Standard of Learning tests given to the Commonwealth’s public school students."
- Voting Rights
Excerpt: "My bill, HB 1774, which would have extended voting hours from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. for the benefit of commuters and all voters, did not advance out of Subcommittee. In fact, a number of bills were passed that will make voting more difficult rather than easier for voters. Legislation was passed that requires photo identification in order to vote, which will negatively impact voters who do not have a birth certificate and will force voter registrars to purchase costly equipment to provide a substitute ID for those who request it."
Filler-Corn’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Protect Our Schools
Excerpt: "...as a local leader who spent five years on the PTA board, I’ll strongly oppose massive cuts to our world-class schools. Strong schools are not only important because of our kids, but because good schools protect property values and attract good jobs to our area. And it’s why I am so focused on cutting wasteful spending elsewhere – because the last place we should be cutting is from our future."
- Cut Wasteful Spending to Improve Our Economy
Excerpt: "We have to cut waste, not our schools. That is why I have a plan to require on-going, professional audits of all state agencies to find waste and identify places to cut costs. I want to give incentives to state employees to root out waste by rewarding whistle blowers and waste-cutters."
- Finding Transportation Solutions
Excerpt: "Time on the road is time better spent with your family. I want to help end the gridlock by giving a tax-break to businesses that let employees work from home and have flex times, improving bus and METRO to make them even more efficient, bring good paying jobs to our area to decrease commute times, and fight for our fair share so our transportation dollars don’t get shipped downstate. And while finding transportation solutions is a priority, I do not believe that our kids should compete with roads for taxpayer dollars."
- Fighting for Our Seniors
Excerpt: "Our seniors have worked hard to build a home and a life in a community that they care about and they deserve the best. With my parents and in-laws living nearby, and her volunteer work at senior centers, I see the issues affecting seniors. That’s why I will fight against cuts to programs that help seniors in their own homes, whether it is in-home care or programs like Meals-On-Wheels."
