Crime is rising in many of our communities and nearby cities. Public safety initiatives should not be a partisan issue, but rather a common goal to keep our neighborhoods and streets safe.
I believe that law enforcement officers are the heroes of our local community. We should be empowering these professionals to enforce existing laws and protect our families. Supporting our police goes beyond funding. We can help law enforcement by encouraging and restoring trust in our police officers.
I will back incentives for law enforcement recruitment and work with officials to better understand how we can strengthen our law enforcement agencies and their effectiveness.
We need more police, not less. Simply put, our police keep us safe - they are the frontline that we turn to for help. Let’s show our heroes that we appreciate their sacrifice!
No Tax Increases
Increased property taxes have contributed to excessive costs and wasteful spending. The solution is not higher taxes, but rather managed growth and a focus on reduced crime, superior education, and quality of life.
I pledge to staunchly oppose any efforts that seek to increase taxes. I will always advocate for and support sensible measures that stress the importance of smarter spending and fiscal responsibility.
Ideology-driven agendas have led to even more unrestrained spending. I am determined to block the funding of programs that force political ideologies on our families and communities. It is not the role of government to use our money to further radical philosophies or partisan agendas. Vigilance and careful spending are the first steps in keeping indoctrination out of our institutions and education system.
Limited & Balanced Government
In recent history, our local county government has become increasingly one-sided. Our nation and local communities shine when the political scale is in balance. I will work tirelessly to offer a voice for the many that feel their concerns haven’t been heard.
Government should be limited in size and in power. It is with this consideration that I will combat any measures that seek to further expand the role of government in our daily lives. I am committed to bringing common sense solutions that will benefit all and place a check on government overreach.
I am against pay increases for members of the Board of Supervisors. I will prioritize initiatives that improve the lives of all the people of Hunter Mill and Fairfax County at-large, and not the interests of bigger government.
