Issues

Source: Campaign page

The 64th District has always been home. Emily grew up here, Emily went to school here, and Emily has owned businesses here. We need to make sure we are preserving the principles and values we hold so dear to keep them in tact for future generations.

Governance

Taxes

As a member of the House Finance Committee, Emily fights to keep taxes low and has worked towards meaningful and effective tax reform in the Commonwealth. In 2018 alone, Emily helped defeat over $770 million in tax increases. The next year, she voted in favor of the most significant tax relief in the past 15 years and the second largest tax cut in Virginia history. We cannot ignore how burdensome, excessive taxation has injured the small business climate.

Civil Rights

Life

As a member of the House Finance Committee, Emily fights to keep taxes low and has worked towards meaningful and effective tax reform in the Commonwealth. In 2018 alone, Emily helped defeat over $770 million in tax increases. The next year, she voted in favor of the most significant tax relief in the past 15 years and the second largest tax cut in Virginia history. We cannot ignore how burdensome, excessive taxation has injured the small business climate.

Economy

Emily will continue to work to reign in government overreach by cutting unnecessary red tape and getting government out of the way. In 2018 Emily received a 100 A+ rating with the Virginia Chamber of Commerce and was named their Freshman Legislator of the Year. She’s helped block legislation that added overreaching regulations that would have harmed Virginia’s top job creators.

Education

Our children are our future. As your Delegate, Emily voted in favor of initiatives to make vocational, trade, and career and technical education opportunities more available across the Commonwealth and to focus on workforce development in our schools. In Richmond, she helped pass legislation to allow school resource officers and increase funding for school safety to keep our kids safe. As a founding member of the VA Future Caucus, Emily has worked to tackle issues facing the next generation, like freezing tuition rates and lowering the cost of college prepaid plans.

Infrastructure

Broadband Access

Emily was appointed in 2018 to serve on the Broadband Advisory Council (BAC) which recommends broadband projects and funding priorities to the General Assembly. She worked in 2019 to include roughly $18 million in new funding for improving access to broadband in rural areas.

One of the reasons Emily decided to run for Delegate is because, all too often, politicians hide away in an ivory tower. Emily has opened an office in Smithfield for appointments with constituents to hear their ideas and work to fix their issues. Emily believes in a government of the people and will work hard to represent the people not special interests, lobbyists, or party agendas.

Agriculture

Agriculture has always been the staple of our region. In Richmond, Emily has worked to create the best possible environment for agri-business by supporting tax relief for farmers, cutting unnecessary regulations that are harming small farms and working to increase opportunities for agri-tourism.
