Michelle On the Issues
An economy that works
As a small business owner, I understand personally how the pandemic job market and economy impact our ability to earn a living and make ends meet. I support workers' rights, small businesses, a living wage, and up-skilling our workforce as ways to generate job growth, competitiveness, and diversity along with a strong and healthy economy.
We all know that our infrastructure is aging, inefficient, and insufficient. As our population grows, our transportation and infrastructure must improve in a balanced way that promotes efficient and affordable transportation options. I support rail extension, energy efficient vehicles, road repair and green design for our community. The time has come to make bold investments in our infrastructure.
Taking bold action on infrastructure
to build our future
every child, supporting every teacher
Quality education is the key to both a competitive future and the security of our community, region, and country. It also helps us attract and retain a diverse workforce allowing families to thrive.
I believe in common sense ventilation for all school buildings, higher pay for teachers and free community college for Prince William County residents helping to minimize education debt and increase access for all.
I believe that affordable and accessible healthcare is a right, not a privilege. It is important for a healthy family, community, and Commonwealth. I will work for you to ensure both accessible and affordable healthcare as we also ensure a sustainable COVID recovery that includes safe re-openings of schools and businesses supported by science, proper PPE, and protocols.
accessible to every community
Supporting criminal justice reform
Too many Virginians are trapped in a cycle of poverty, criminality, and incarceration. Despite recent efforts to reduce mass incarceration, the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and far too many others show that we have more work to do. Now is the time for us to come together to reform our criminal justice system, end unfair sentencing, and the stunted circumstances that rob too many of our citizens of the chance to become good neighbors and community leaders. I pledge to work with our law enforcement, educators and community leaders to address these systemic issues.
District 50 is our home. Whether we are cleaning our streets and highways, converting to electric vehicles, seeking recycled materials or alternative energy sources, we all need to do our part to help address today's climate and environmental crises. The Virginia Clean Economy Act is a great start. I want to continue this good work and explore new and creative ways to enable green mobility options and methods to decrease our carbon footprint along with smart local land development and use.
