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

"Our quality of life is affected by transportation and education. As a county supervisor, I worked with both parties to improve transportation and education. I was a founder of the Virginia Railway Express, which takes one lane of traffic off Interstate 95. I worked to widen Cardinal Drive and extend Dale Boulevard and the parkway to Route 1. I support higher teacher pay to keep and attract teachers. As delegate, I want to extend HOV past Stafford and increase mass transit to reduce gridlock. I oppose HOT lanes. I am endorsed by the Prince William and Virginia education associations."

Why should voters elect you?

"As a moderate, I have a proven record of working across party lines to build rail, roads and schools, and putting police officers on the street."

Jeffrey M. Frederick (R)*

Age: 30

Residence: Woodbridge.

Education: BA, economics and political science, Emory University.

Occupation: Chief executive, GXS Strategies; state delegate.

Elected offices/civic activities: Member, House of Delegates, 2004-present; vice chairman, Virginia Small Business Commission; member, House Committee on Education, House Committee on Health, Welfare and Institutions Committee, House Committee on Privileges and Elections, Route 1 Location Study Steering Committee, Northern Virginia Transportation Authority, Republican National Hispanic Assembly; chairman, Virginia Commission to Study Highway Noise Abatement; board member, Hispanic Business Roundtable and Latino Coalition.

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

"Irresponsible growth. Whether it is our congested roads, crowded schools or longer response times by police, fire and rescue services, the out-of-control growth is our biggest challenge because it affects everything that impacts our quality of life. We must better manage growth, ensuring that the necessary infrastructure (schools, roads, fire stations, etc.) is in place before the new development is built. We also need to make sure development/planning decisions are being made based on common sense by taking the money and politics out of these decisions. Politicians need to work for the people they represent, not the special interests."

Why should voters elect you?

"I'll continue to effectively work in the majority party in Richmond to improve our schools, address our transportation challenges and fight for lower taxes."
