Issues

Campaign themes

Medlin's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

  • Education

Excerpt: "In this changing economy all our children must have access to the same educational opportunities and resources that students in other areas of Virginia have. As your next delegate I will work to find the necessary funding to ensure all our children receive the same opportunities as other students across Virginia receive."

  • Jobs

Excerpts: "We need to help our 19th District families who are out of work by": 1) "coordinating federal and state tuition assistance programs that will help displaced workers learn a new skill," 2) "providing low interest loans to help our small business owners," and 3) "providing a $500 tax credit for a new part time employee that is hired by our small businesses."

  • Keeping our promises

Excerpt: "We can protect our senior citizens Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid benefits. As your next delegate, I will fight to protect our senior's earned benefits so they will never have to choose between heating their homes, buying food, or taking the medication they need."

  • Route 220

Excerpt: "We can finish the Route 220 road improvement project. Surely 38 years of waiting for the Route 220 road improvements to be finished is long enough! As your next delegate I will insist that Virginia return the funding that has been allocated to get this long overdue and important road work completed."

2009

Medlin's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • Social Security and Medicare benefits

Excerpt: "The Republicans in Washington and Richmond are working to end Medicare and Social Security as we know it. With your support, I will fight to stop this assault and preserve our Medicare and Social Security for our senior citizens."

  • Ensure that our local public schools are properly funded

Excerpt: "The children of Alleghany, Botetourt, and Bedford are our future. Clearly, Lacey Putney did not share our concerns, when he voted to cut 1.5 Billion dollars from our public schools. I believe our children are our most valuable asset, and I will work to ensure that our public schools are properly funded, and that our children receive the best education we can provide."

  • Wasteful spending in state government

Excerpt: "The Republican controlled House of Delegates is throwing away our hard earned tax dollars. Putney and his Republican friends voted to borrow 1.8 Billion dollars to fund our transportation system, and obligated all of us to pay back 3.6 Billion dollars over the next 25 years for that loan. In these hard times, we simply cannot afford this kind of wasteful spending!"

  • Electricity and gas rates

Excerpt: "Our electric bills have sky rocketed over 70% since Putney voted for a bill that the electirc utility companies supported. Isn’t eight rate increases in four years enough? Clearly, its time to stop electric utility companies excessive rate requests and insist on fair pricing for our electricity."
