Reason for Seeking Public Office:

I am passionate about three things politically: 1) The Constitution of the United States, 2) The Constitution of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and 3) The constituents of the 22nd Senatorial District of Virginia whom I serve. My goal has been to uphold and represent the principles and ideals held sacred by those three entities. I am happy and proud to have had the opportunity to successfully do just that. I intend to continue to pursue this simple ideal as the Senator of the 22nd District and your servant in Richmond.
