Issues

Campaign themes

2013

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

  • Virginia Job Creation
Excerpt: "In the House of Delegates, Glenn Davis will continue to help small businesses succeed by limiting regulations, making it easier to expand and hire while attracting new businesses to relocate here. Today, investing in new business technology means higher annual property taxes for a business. Glenn Davis believes that encouraging businesses to reinvest in technology will increase their productivity and lead to a more skilled workforce trained on the newest technology. By making a property tax category specific to technology equipment and allowing cities and counties the option to exempt business property taxes on that equipment, we will attract higher paying jobs and make Virginian’s the most skilled workforce in the country."
  • Energy Independence
Excerpt: "Glenn Davis supports environmentally responsible exploration and drilling for oil and natural gas as well as expanding our capacity for nuclear power in Virginia."
  • 21st Century Education
Excerpt: "Glenn knows that education funding can get lost in bureaucratic budgets and red tape. Glenn’s focus is on making sure education dollars reach the teachers and classrooms where it can make a difference. Glenn supports the idea that Virginia classrooms be the focus of education investment. Glenn also supports using the communication tools of the 21st century to help make learning more effective."
  • Protecting the Second Amendment
Excerpt: "While recent events are tragic, our response should not be an all-out attack on the Second Amendment, but rather a focused effort on changes that would actually prevent events like those from happening again."
  • Life & Family
Excerpt: "Glenn recognizes that good and reasonable people may disagree on this issue, but he believes in the sanctity of human life. More importantly, Glenn believes that we should make more easily available the ability for a woman to place a child into a warm, loving home with parents that have been looking to welcome a baby into their family. By making the adoption process more streamlined, women can be more confident that their babies will not end up lost, growing up inside a governmental system, but rather in a loving home, allowing not only their child to live their dreams, but also allowing loving couples to reach theirs."

Race snapshot

See also: 2013 Elections Preview: Some seats may switch parties in the Virginia House of Delegates

A Virginia Beach-area seat left open by the departure of Salvatore Iaquinto (R), this district gave Governor Bob McDonnell (R) 64 percent of the vote in 2009 but President Barack Obama (D) fought presidential candidate Mitt Romney (R) to a near draw in this district in 2012. Davis was elected to the Virginia Beach City Council in 2008, and Brent McKenzie (D) served on the Virginia Beach School Board from 2008 to 2012. The district's Republican leanings suggested that this seat would not change parties, but if the Democrats find themselves having a very good election night, this seat may be contestable.[5][6]
