About

Source: Campaign page

My name is Darlene Lewis, but most people call me Miss Darlene. 

I am a 20-year resident of Roanoke County and a small business owner. I am hardworking and determined. My heart led me to open the doors to The Hope Center, a local non-profit organization that responds to some of the most basic needs of the community.

I am not a career politician and I have never held public office. I am, however, a wife, a mother, and an ordained minister.

At this volatile time in our history, I see many needs in our community and I believe the best way for me to address these needs is by entering the political arena.

I look forward to listening to the cares and concerns of the people living in the 8th district, and I look forward to helping my neighbors. I will work to see that the peoples’ needs are met and will do so as God’s humble servant.

Thank you for your support!

Issues

Economy

We must recognize the role of early childhood education, criminal justice reform, neighborhood desegregation, and economic diversification on our overall success.

Education

A quality education is the key to uplifting everyone. It is essential that we continue to improve our public school systems from the bottom up.

Health Care

Every family should have the ability to take their children to the doctor without worry of financial ruin. We must improve and expand our current healthcare system.
