Campaign themes


Clingan's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • Transportation

Excerpt: "Overwhelmingly, the voters I’ve met in our district have asked that when I vote in the House of Delegates, I vote as a Northern Virginian first. I promise to do just that. To receive my support, I will insist that any legislation designed to address transportation needs ensures that Fairfax and Loudoun County will receive a greater allocation of state revenues due to our extraordinary needs and the rightful place we occupy as the economic engine of the Commonwealth."

  • Education

Excerpt: "Strengthening freedom requires a solid education that nurtures our young and instills an appreciation in them for this great country and the opportunities that await them. To do this, we must recognize where we need to improve our efforts. Our leaders tell us Fairfax County’s public schools are some of the best in the Nation. But over the past few years, according to one major national ranking, both Chantilly High School and Westfield High School have steadily been outpaced."

  • Choice

Excerpt: "I believe that a woman’s right to determine her reproductive choices should be a hallmark of a country and a Commonwealth that values freedom and individual rights. I believe that a woman’s decision is between herself, her doctor, and her God."
