Issues

Taxes
I will oppose tax hikes on our citizens and work to repeal tax hikes that have been put into effect. This year Virginians will be paying higher electric bills, natural gas bills, and even got a hefty gas tax hike from Richmond. With 11% unemployment and many in our community struggling piling on with more tax hikes on hardworking people is not something Richmond should be doing, and as Delegate, I will work to roll back these tax increases that hit the most vulnerable in our community the most.

Jobs & Regulation
I will be a taxpayer ally in Richmond and the strongest advocate of the Upper Shenandoah Valley. I’ll oppose new tax increases and burdensome regulations that hurt our businesses and citizens. I will be a pro-jobs delegate that supports measures that bring new jobs to our community and fight for our fair share of tax dollars from Richmond.

Second Amendment
This year liberal Democrats led a full assault on our Second Amendment rights. As Delegate, I will oppose all forms of Gun Control measures that will infringe on your constitutional right to bear arms and work to repeal unconstitutional actions liberal Democrat legislators took in Richmond.

Police
I will always support our Law Enforcement Officers. I will not support any attempt to defund our police. They work diligently to keep our community safe day and night, and I will be a champion for them in Richmond.

Prolife
I believe that life begins at conception and that the Democrats’ attempts to use our tax dollars to fund planned parenthood needs to be stopped. As Delegate, I will work to stop it.

History
As a father of three children in schools, I want my children to learn about our shared history. Good, Bad, and Ugly. I don’t support symbolic actions such as renaming our schools or renaming streets. Right now, we are even seeing radical ‘activists’ tearing down statues of George Washington, where does it end?

I believe more historical context needs to be provided to the statues that currently stand and we need to look at adding more monuments and markers that tell more of our shared story from all points of view. Erasing the past isn’t ever the solution.
