It’s that time of year again! Summer is over and our students, teachers, and staff are headed back to school. I wish everyone a productive, safe, and fun year. A first-class education is the best gift we can give our kids. I would love to hear about events, accomplishments, and any concerns you have throughout the year.

This has been a busy month starting with the 4th of July celebrations. I have been busy attending events across our district, meeting with residents of our community and addressing local issues. I am looking forward to continuing my work representing you in the House of Delegates.

On Tuesday, July 9th, we will return to Richmond for a special legislative session. Following the deadly shooting in Virginia Beach, we met with the Governor in Richmond where he held a press conference and announced that we will go into special session to address critical gun safety issues. These issues were rejected, blocked and not allowed to be heard or voted on in this past legislative session. It is my hope that the recent tragedy will have had a meaningful impact on opponents of sensible gun safety efforts and allow us to move forward with meaningful laws and regulations that will save lives.

It has been great to be back in the 34th district and I've enjoyed seeing so many of you out at events across the district. I'd like to take this opportunity to update you on what we’ve accomplished and what lies ahead. In this past session, I was disappointed over the failure to pass the ERA, as well as the lack of progress on common-sense measures to address gun violence. And I was heartbroken that my bill to protect victims of domestic abuse (HB2042) that passed in both the House and the Senate was vetoed by the Governor.
