Top three campaign issues:

1. Affordable health care: Health care must be affordable, adequate, and accessible to all. We need to expand more access to mental health and substance abuse treatment. We need to lower prescription cost and insurance co-pays.

2. Broadband: Rural areas need access to broadband being that we have expanded the Virginia Telecommunication initiative monetarily and passed HB 831 in 2020, which allows companies to use easements in rural areas to run lines, which eliminates the cost factor for telecom companies in Virginia allow rural areas to finally be included instead of excluded.

3. Education: We need increase teacher pay to the national average here in Virginia. We need to look at the standards of quality for teacher/classroom ratio, and we need to increase funding in special education and mental health services within our education system.
