Dear Friends and Neighbors,
It is a privilege and an honor to serve you – the families of the 7th State Senate District. I work for you and I strive to do the very best I can to represent your interests. I have dedicated my time representing you in Richmond focusing on the key responsibilities of the Commonwealth— education, public safety, transportation and an efficient state government.
While we should always strive for improvement, we have a lot to be proud of in Virginia. We have been ranked the best state in which to do business, ranked as one of the best-managed states in the nation, one of the safest states in the nation and our colleges and universities are the envy of the nation. And, Virginia Beach has consistently ranked as one of the best cities in the United States to raise a family.
We take pride in these achievements; however we must continue working hard in these challenging economic times. Our geography and the inherent capabilities of the Hampton Roads workforce provide opportunities for our area to play a significant role in the emerging energy field. I will continue to dedicate my efforts in promoting new energy projects locally and in other areas of the state, to grow our economy by creating new jobs through the development of environmentally friendly renewable and alternative energy resources.
As your state senator, I’ll keep working for you and your family to make Virginia an even better place to live, work and raise a family. Please let me know how I cam be of service to you.
