I help run a small business that advises government agencies, non-profits, and companies on efficient spending. I know how to lead in managing our Commonwealth’s financial resources responsibly. Increasing funding for schools, infrastructure, and healthcare can work within our budget so long as we cut wasteful spending. Right now, the hard-earned money that Northern Virginians pay in taxes does not come back to our community. This needs to change. I will fight to make sure that our district’s tax dollars are working for us.
An important part of healthy economic development is protecting labor unions and the right to unionize. I also support apprenticeships and trade schools and will work to increase trade job growth in the district and across the Commonwealth.
