Issues

Campaign themes

2013

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

  • Transportation

Excerpt: "First, we need to secure stable funding for transportation that does not take away funds for our schools. ...Second, I will fight for the expansion and upgrade of metro, especially along the Dulles corridor. ...Third, I will support alternative means of transportation. The use bicycles for transportation as well as recreation deserve safer avenues and protection on our roads."

  • Education

Excerpt: "Funding for our schools must be secured and dedicated. Our children must be able to compete in a global economy and that cannot happen if we continue to under fund our schools at the expense of other government programs."

  • Immigration

Excerpt: "We should not be singling out immigrants because they are different from us, we should work to welcome and help them assimilate in community life. As Congress and the President move toward comprehensive — bipartisan — immigration reform Virginia needs to prepare and encourage its immigrants to take the path toward citizenship."

  • Women’s Rights

Excerpt: "Women should have the right to decide about their own health care and reproductive options and be fully covered by adequate and accessible health insurance. I will work to reduce the legislature’s stigmatizing of women in their life choices. I support the goal of “equal pay for equal work” as well as equality in promotion and other vocational recognitions."

  • Equal LGBT Rights

Excerpt: "The sexual orientation or sexual identity of any Virginian should not be a factor in employment, adoption procedures, accommodations, or access to marriage rights. I will work with other legislators in banning discrimination toward LGBT citizens in Virginia’s state employment and public accommodations."
