Why should the voters elect you?

"I have worked to be both your connection and your voice in Virginia's government. I am most proud of a constituent's letter which stated, "you have given us a sense of ownership in our government. Being able to know you're heard is super!" As for your voice, I have been a member of the Republican Team which achieved your goals. We eliminated parole, set greater academic expectations in our schools, lowered college tuition by 20 percent, dedicated 100 percent of the lottery money to schools, reformed welfare and eliminated the car tax. I will continue to work hard for you."

What would you like voters to know about you?

"Since the beginning, transportation has been my primary focus. Having helped achieve the Springfield Interchange reconstruction, connecting Metro from Springfield to Tysons is next."
