  • Keeping taxes low

"On the Board of Supervisors, Terry has helped keep local taxes low while ensuring local schools remain top notch and public safety was fully funded. As your next Delegate, he will use that experience to insist that Richmond stretches every hard-earned dollar you pay in taxes and to ensure that taxes are kept low."

  • Attracting new jobs

"As your next Delegate, Terry will work to reduce red tape and unnecessary regulation on small business owners so they can better compete and grow. And Terry will push for common-sense economic development programs that help market Western Virginia as a prime location for businesses looking to relocate or expand."

  • Standing up for your gun rights

"Terry is committed to upholding and defending your liberties and constitutional rights as your next Delegate, especially your right to own and carry a firearm. He is a gun owner and staunch supporter of the Second Amendment."

  • Defending the traditional values that build strong communities

"He is proudly pro-life and will support additional efforts to protect the unborn. Terry also supports laws that protect every Virginian’s right to openly proclaim and practice their faith."

  • Making sure Western Virginia children have world-class schools

"As your next Delegate, Terry will continue to stand up for educational excellence that is measurable so that parents can continually assess their local school’s quality. And Terry will work to ensure that Virginia’s public colleges and universities continue to be among the best in the nation."
