Issues

Campaign themes

Barsa's website lists the following:

  • Jobs

Excerpt: "To increase the number of taxpayers in our community, Virginia needs greater incentives for businesses to open shop in our neighborhoods. The Route 1 corridor is ripe for economic improvement if action is taken to incentivize businesses. Tax incentives and streamlined processes for business to open in areas similar to the Route 1 Corridor is one path to greater employment and thus greater revenues for the state from a healthier tax base."

  • Transportation

Excerpt: "Part of John’s plan is to work to address the current transportation funding formula so that Northern Virginia and other similarly challenged communities get more of their tax dollars back from Richmond. The increased productivity and economic development initiatives that would result from a more efficient traffic system demonstrate that investments in transportation infrastructure are well worth the cost."

  • Education

Excerpt: "John is dedicated to keeping Virginia’s schools the best in the country. In order to maintain this level of achievement, John supports innovative and cutting edge programs from kindergarten through the collegiate level. John supports listening to the teachers and administrators that are in the schools every day and providing them the tools they need."

Personal

Barsa and his wife, Lisa, have two children.
