My work has always been to fight and speak out against injustice, and to speak up against inequality and unfairness.
On Saturday, August 9th, I am seeking your support and vote. I will be honored to continue the calling of being the voice for the working class and the marginalized citizens.
It has been my privilege to serve you in the House of Delegates, on the City Council, and on the City of Richmond Public School Board. You can count on me to be your voice in the State Senate. I will ensure that the gains we have made under Sen. Marsh’s leadership will continue.
YOUR VOTE ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 9TH IS CRITICAL!
