Issues

Gas tax

May compared opponents of a gas tax hike to homeowners who don’t want to pay their gas or electric bills. May said transportation needs to be treated as a utility, or Virginia isn’t going to compare favorably with her neighbors.

“I’m concerned when we cross the North Carolina line, we’re going to look like East Berlin if we stay on this track,” May said.[3]

Redistricting

May shared his thoughts on the 2011 redistricting process in Virgina.[4]
