|Virginia House of Delegates, District 33|
|Profession||Small business manager|
Hagerty manages a small business.
Hagerty’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Natural Gas Development
Excerpt: "I am a firm believer in the potential of Natural Gas!!"
- Cut Taxes and Spending
Excerpt: "Each year, Virginia state government spends billions on health care and education, and over a billion dollars on public safety. I want to cut spending on all of these things, as well as many other departments. If elected, I will file a budget bill that cuts state spending immediately by 25% or more."
- End the War on Drugs
Excerpt: "Firstly, government should have a very limited roll [sic] when it comes to an agreement between two consenting adults! Selling and using drugs may be personally unwise, but those activities don't violate anyone's rights. By establishing drug prohibition, our government has taken a modest problem and turned it into a huge problem. Now we have to deal with drug gangs and black markets, and taxpayers have to pay to keep thousands of people in jail as well as turning Virginia's residents from just that into 'Enemies of War'."
- Efficient transportation
Excerpt: "Government involvement in transportation drives up costs, reduces choice, creates congestion, and provides opportunities for corruption. In a free market, quality would improve, and competition would bring down prices. Customers and suppliers would determine how much of a particular transportation mode was offered, such as roads, trains, buses, taxis, bicycle lanes, and pedestrian access."
Hagerty lives in Leesburg, VA.
