Issues

Campaign themes

  • Job Creation

Excerpt: "As a small business owner, Roxann understands the challenges facing businesses – making payroll every two weeks and sticking to a budget, especially in these difficult economic times. Roxann also understands how government red tape, regulations, and taxes are obstacles to business creation and expansion. Creating new jobs and re-invigorating our workforce will be a top priority for as your Delegate."

  • Tax Relief

Excerpt: "Roxann firmly believes that tax increases are not the solution and only contribute to further hardship for taxpayers. As your Delegate, she will work to limit government spending and control, and vote to reduce taxes on Virginia families and small businesses."

  • Healthcare

Excerpt: "As an optometrist, Roxann has seen firsthand the problems with our healthcare system. The endless bureaucratic red tape only gets in the way of a patient and his or her doctor. These problems will only grow worse because of the President’s healthcare reform. To improve our healthcare system, Roxann will support free market reforms, not more government regulations. Decisions on healthcare should be between a patient and doctor – not the patient and a government bureaucrat. Roxann will support Governor McDonnell and Attorney General Cuccinelli’s efforts to fight national healthcare legislation."

  • Education Improvement

Excerpt: "Roxann will work to ensure that no less than 65% of education funding is spent in the classroom where it belongs."

  • Protecting Innocent Life

Excerpt: "Roxann believes in the sanctity of life and, as your Delegate, will support legislation that protects innocent life."

  • Defending the 2nd Amendment

Excerpt: "Roxann will support the 2nd Amendment and will oppose any efforts to prohibit the rights of law-abiding gun owners to own or operate a gun."

Personal

Robinson has a husband, Michael.
