Issues

Campaign Themes

2013

Cathcart's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Education

"Every parent should have access to the technology that will let them know how their children are doing in school at every grade level. A major factor in the success of a child’s education, whether they attend public, private or are home schooled, is the parent’s involvement in making sure that their child is doing well and finding their child help when needed."

  • Protecting Women's Lives

"Women deserve to be treated with respect and to have access to quality health care. The current Virginia administration wants to impose new regulations to women’s health centers under the pretense of protecting women. Legislators who passed a new regulation law last General Assembly did so saying that they cared about women’s health, but when these new regulations go into effect, almost all the women’s health centers in Virginia might cease to exist."
