Issues

Campaign themes

  • Transportation

Excerpt: "Get traffic and transportation moving again by funding high priority projects and innovations like telecommuting, taking advantage of competitive bidding and low interest rates, and revenue sharing with localities. We need to get the funding formula right: the money the 10th sends to Richmond needs to be spent in the 10th."

  • Fiscal Policy

Excerpt: "I will oppose all tax increases. America doesn’t have a revenue problem it has a spending problem. We are best served by a smaller, more efficient government. Balanced budgets are a necessity."

  • Economy

Excerpt: "Create jobs by supporting our job creators: small businesses, clean high tech industry, mom and pop retailers, and entrepreneurs.Maintain and enhance Virginia’s friendly business climate to attract more and better-paying jobs for our families by reducing regulation and waste. Support Virginia’s Right-To-Work law."

  • Energy Policy

Excerpt: "I will work for energy independence for our country and Commonwealth. We should be drilling off Virginia’s coast – now."

  • Education

Excerpt: "Insist on constant improvement in our schools. We’re lucky to have some of the best schools in the nation right here at home. Parents, teachers, and local officials will make the best decisions for our children and their schools."

  • Public Safety

Excerpt: "Support law enforcement and first responders, insist on safe communities through zero-tolerance of crime, and protect our communities from illegal immigration by deporting criminal aliens and giving state and local law officers the right to enforce immigration laws working with the federal government."
