2011

Kory’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • Protecting Our K-12 Education

Excerpt: "For the last 10 years it has been my privilege and honor to serve you on the Fairfax School Board. I have gained valuable experience in managing budgets, fiscal responsibility, and the work required to create some of the best schools in America. I will bring this experience with me to Richmond to protect K-12 education."

  • Dialogue with Localities and More Local Control

Excerpt: "When I wanted to get a cross walk painted on a road near an elementary school to make the area safer for pedestrians, I had to wait months to get permission from the state. By that time I could have gone out there with a can of paint and done it myself. It is time for the delegate from the 38th District to advocate for more local control."

  • Partnering with public safety officials is critical to maintaining safe neighborhoods

Excerpt: "We must take very good care of our police, firefighters and EMTs, as they protect us and ensure the freedom that a low crime rate and safe neighborhoods allow. We must partner with them and never take their extraordinary service for granted."

  • Expanding Access to Preventative Health Care Services

Excerpt: "Incredible advances in science and medicine mean we can catch and provide care for some of our most serious diseases. Now we need to make sure health insurance companies are making those advances accessible to all of us."

  • Eliminating the State Sales Tax on Food

Excerpt: "The economy is bad, and everyone needs relief. One of the easiest ways to help all Virginians is to finally repeal the state sales tax on food."

  • All Eligible Children Covered by Health Insurance

Excerpt: "We need to make sure all Virginia children who are eligible are enrolled in federally-funded programs providing access to health insurance so they get the preventive health care they need."

  • Expanding Northern Virginia Higher Education Resources

Excerpt: "Adding capacity to our excellent Northern Virginia higher education system is critical to ensure the next generation of Virginia leaders are cultivated here at home."

  • Short Term Fixes and Long Term Solutions for Our Transportation Problems

Excerpt: "As your delegate, improving transportation for our residents and our businesses will be one of my top priorities. I will fight for a better approach to transportation in Richmond; one that includes short term low-cost fixes and the development of a long term sensible and pragmatic solution."
