Elected offices/civic activities:

Why should voters elect you?

"Based on my record of honest representation, working to build bipartisan coalitions and being more interested in getting results than getting credit."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"Improving transportation. A balanced transportation network is critical to maintaining prosperity and quality of life. For over two decades I have been involved in every major transportation improvement in our region including building the original 103-mile Metro system, widening Interstate 66 inside and outside the Capital Beltway, rebuilding the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. I have led the effort to bring Metrorail through Tysons Corner to Dulles International Airport, synchronize stoplights to improve traffic flow and promote telework. Through my leadership, the Northern Virginia Gang Task Force was formed and funded to keep neighborhoods safe from the growing threat of gangs."
