Issues

Campaign themes

  • Fiscal Responsibility

Excerpt: "While treasurer for the McLean Community Center, she proposed and the Board approved a 10% reduction in McLean’s small district tax rate—saving McLean’s citizens over $1million while at the same time incorporating the McLean Project for the Arts into the Center and establishing the Firehouse Teen Center."

  • Non-Discrimination

Excerpt: "Pamela does not support discriminating against workers based on race, sex, color, national origin, religion, age, political affiliation, or against otherwise qualified persons with disabilities or veterans. Further, Pamela does not support discrimination based on sexual orientation and would support legislation that adds sexual orientation to Virginia’s non-discrimination policy."

  • Protecting Our Environment

Excerpt: "Pamela supports preserving our environment for our children and grandchildren. She opposes the clear cutting of trees along the banks of our scenic Potomac River as has just occurred at Trump’s Golf Club in Loudoun, known as Trump’s Stumps and supports conservation easements. Pamela spent years on the McLean Citizens Association Trees Committee – recycling and planting trees in McLean."

  • Responsible, Strategic Business Growth

Excerpt: "It is critical that we broaden the business base of Northern Virginia, not only to increase the tax base, but also to provide high-paying job opportunities. As a small business owner, Pamela knows the value of supporting small businesses that provide quality jobs for our community. Pamela will support tax incentives for small businesses that create jobs. Pamela has been a member of the McLean Chamber of Commerce since 1986."

  • Standing Up for Our Schools

Excerpt: "Education is a top priority for Pamela. Before attending law school, Pamela was a Junior High School Spanish teacher and has a deep appreciation for the job of our classroom teacher. Pamela’s three daughters attended Fairfax County Public Schools from kindergarten through 12th grade and Pamela is committed to providing our children with a quality education. She will stand up for fair funding for our Northern Virginia students and work to increase the number of our students that are admitted to Virginia’s public state colleges and universities."

  • Supporting Reproductive Rights

Excerpt: "Pamela supports common-sense family planning and reproductive rights. Pamela believes that deeply personal issues like abortion are between a woman and her doctor and that government should not be controlling these decisions."

  • Transportation Solutions

Excerpt: "Pamela will encourage partnerships in our community and work with our local elected officials to provide for new walk/bike paths and shuttle bus service to our new Metro stations. Pamela will work for the interests of Northern Virginia."
