Why should the voters elect you?
"As a lifelong resident of Manassas and chairman of the board of a 77-year-old family-owned business in the community, I feel I have an inherent understanding of our issues. I have conscientiously served the citizens of the 50th District since 1982, evaluating and supporting legislation I feel is in the best interests of my district, Prince William County and the commonwealth as a whole. My door is always open to concerns from residents; I work hard to provide good constituent service for matters involving state agencies and legislative issues."
What would you like voters to know about you?
"I view issues in a nonpartisan manner, because it is their impact on the citizens that is important, not their political origins or ideology."
