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

"The most urgent problem for the 33rd House District and Virginia, particularly Northern Virginia, is the need to alter our present transportation strategy to address the severe traffic problems we face. The strategy must include a different means of transportation funding and recognition that it is no longer possible to solve all the problems with just asphalt. Rail and transit must become a substantial part of the solution."

Why should voters elect you?

"My experience as a legislator, businessman/engineer, and inventor provides skills that are of great value when making difficult decisions facing my district and the commonwealth."

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

"As I go door-to-door, it is clear to me that skyrocketing property taxes is one of the most urgent issues. That's why I have a three-part plan to curb property tax increases, whereas my opponent has no plan and, in fact, he made it harder for families to live in our district by voting to raise taxes by $1.4 billion."

Why should voters elect you?

"I am a solid conservative who will lead the charge in Richmond to lower taxes and protect hardworking Virginia families."
