|Virginia House of Delegates, District 55|
|High school||Patrick Henry High School|
|Bachelor's||Mary Washington College|
Raised in Ashland, VA, Radler graduated from Patrick Henry High School and Mary Washington College. She worked as a reporter for several local media outlets before working in public relations and marketing for several Virginia state government organizations, a private company, and the Christian Children's Fund.
Radler’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Excerpt: "I am thankful that the Assembly finally passed a transportation bill (HB2313), the first in 27 years. John Cox and his legislative aide, Buddy Fowler, did not support this bill. The bill wasn't perfect: it undermined the "user pay" principle and failed to reform VDOT spending. ...the only transportation bill introduced by trucking magnate John Cox and his legislative aide, my opponent, was a trucker's right to drive in the fast lane."
- Women's reproductive rights
Excerpt: "A transvaginal ultrasound bill (HB462) in the 2012 General Assembly drew national attention as it was mocked on Saturday Night Live and The Daily Show. The controversial bill made Virginia the laughing stock of the nation. John Cox and once again, his legislative aide and my opponent, Buddy Fowler, supported that bill which failed only after Virginians rallied en masse to oppose it."
Excerpt: "Virginia has a great public education system, but we must do better. I want to push for quality instruction and curriculum, adequate funding, and excellent working conditions for Virginia's teachers and school support professionals. Because of continued reduction in state funding for colleges, parents now face incredible challenges in paying for their children's college education."
- Simple justice-long overdue
Excerpt: "I support the Equal Rights Amendment. It's time for women to be assured that they will be paid the same as their male counterparts in the workplace; that they will be treated equally in hiring and promotion, and that their accomplishments and abilities, not their gender, will be recognized. I also support an anti-discrimination job hiring directive that my opponent and his boss John Cox helped overturn."
Radler ran in the 2013 election for Virginia House of Delegates District 55. Radler ran unopposed in the June 11 Democratic primary. She was defeated by Buddy Fowler (R) in the general election on November 5, 2013.
