Vote!

Thank you for allowing me to serve as your representative in the Virginia House of Delegates! I am up for election this year and hope I can count on your vote!

I have done my best to represent your interests in Richmond and work hard on the issues that are important to you, including transportation, the economy, and education. I will continue to stand for the sound, conservative principles that have made Virginia a great place to live, work, and raise a family.

I need your help to win!

A Glimpse of the Future

Last year’s General Assembly session was very different than those in the past. In 2017, Republicans lost 15 seats in the House of Delegates, just barely holding on to a razor thin majority. This coupled with Ralph Northam taking the Governorship, allowed Democrats to take advantage of their new-found power and push through Medicaid expansion along with a new tax on hospitals.

While we were not able to stop expansion, we were successful in stopping most of their agenda. This session offers a “Glimpse of the Future” should Democrats be successful in taking control of the General Assembly next year.

The bills introduced this year by Democrats are a real indicator of what we can expect from them. From repealing Virginia’s Voter ID law, to raising taxes, increasing job-killing regulations on businesses, and using tax dollars for abortion and gender reassignment surgeries, their agenda is extreme.

Last year Democrats introduced $700 million dollars in tax hikes, on services like Netflix, Pandora, and Hulu while a separate proposal would have taxed Uber and Lyft. This year is even worse, with Democrats backing a $ 1.2 Billion tax increase primarily on middle class taxpayers, to expand welfare programs. During my service, House Republicans have defeated more than $5 Billion in tax increases. If not for that, Virginia would be the highest taxed state in the Mid-Atlantic and one of the highest in the nation!

Should Democrats pick up just one more seat in the House, they will be able to begin implementing their extreme agenda. What that will mean for us is higher taxes, fewer jobs, and less prosperity.

If you have questions about these or other issues please let me know. Feel free to share this information with others. Again, I hope I can count on your vote on Election Day!

Thanks,
Mark
