We Agree On What Needs To Be Done; Getting It Done Is...


We agree on what needs to be done...

Getting it done is the challenge.


Dear Friends,


While I am serving in Richmond, I am also seeking to continue by serving Virginia's 1st Senate District, including Clarke, Frederick, Warren, and Shenandoah Counties and Winchester City. There are many candidates vying for that office, and, while my opponents I have much in common on the matter of what needs to be done, my experience proves invaluable in meeting the challenges of actually getting things done.


Friends, I serve you, and you are the most important part of the team.

Thank you for the privilege of being your representative in our Virginia government. It is an extraordinary honor. 

This past week, I packed up and headed to Richmond.

It's never easy to pack up and say goodbye to my dear wife, Joanne. She has been glued to her computer

doing the year-end reporting and disclosures for our campaign. She is a hard worker, goes without pay, or, you could say, her payment comes in knowing her gift of time is greatly appreciated. 

Daniel Davies, my legislative director, his wife Kara Lee, and their two children also moved from their home in Winchester to an apartment in Richmond for 7 weeks because they also have servant's hearts.

Daniel, now in his tenth session with me serving the 33rd District, has become extremely proficient at helping find solutions (big and small) for families and businesses in our District. 



Ladies from Concerned Women for America stopped by to chat and pray for progress.


Mr. Speaker, Todd Gilbert of Shenandoah County, and rumored to be the most conservative member of the House, stands firmly against the Democrats' relentless attacks on our core values, our economy, our safety, and our families. The Senate brags they will block our efforts to fix the economy, revive education, and keep us safe. We need to work together because... well, the brick wall thing works both ways.


For Senator Jill Vogel, serving the Shenandoah Valley is very personal. I’m very gratefulto learn from her experience. We chatted about some very urgent needs and how to make progress while at the Governor’s reception in the Executive Mansion on Wednesday night.


Listening to the Governor of Virginia  deliver the annual State of the Commonwealth Address— celebrating bipartisan results- lower taxes, economic development, and higher salaries for teachers and law enforcement.


I did numerous interviews on the bill I have filed to prevent localities from creating a chaotic patchwork of unconstitutional gun laws. House Bill 1427 removes a locality's authority to prohibit the possession or carrying of firearms, ammunition, or components or any combination thereof in (i) any public park owned or operated by the locality; (ii) any recreation or community center facility operated by the locality; or (iii) any public street, road, alley, or sidewalk or public right-of-way or any other place of whatever nature that is open to the public and is being used by or is adjacent to a permitted event or an event that would otherwise require a permit.

...and on proposed laws seeking to protect the unborn. Listen to one of those interviews here

  • We have legislation that will help our students recover from learning loss and put teachers back in control of their classrooms.
  • We're going to cut taxes for families and small businesses by ending the grocery tax, expanding the standard deduction, and lowering tax rates. 
  • We're going to make it easier for businesses to grow and expand by cutting the business tax rate.
  • Even local governments run by Democrats realize that it's time for law and order in Virginia again. We're going to make our communities safer by locking up those who commit crimes with firearms.
  • And we're going to enact major changes to our behavioral health system to get people in crisis the help they need when they need it.
  • We're listening to the voters who sent us to Richmond, and this session we're going to deliver results for every Virginian.
  • Rolling blackouts, freezing families; this is the future Virginia Democrats want for Virginia.
  • Parents are responsible for their children.
  • Virginians, not Californians, should make laws for Virginians. We must uncouple from their bad laws.


Friday, the Courts of Justice Subcommittee took up Delegate Terry Kilgore's House Bill 1642 regarding fatal drug overdoses. Overdose deaths have tripled since 2010 and killed 2,669 Virginians in 2021. As of now, more Virginians die of overdose than die of homicide and vehicle accidents combined.

The bill will expand Virginia's "felony murder" law to cover more drug dealers who sell the illegal drugs that kill. This will help Virginia punish the criminals who are encouraging use and profiting from lethal drugs like fentanyl.

After debate, the bill passed on a party-line vote, 5-3.


We celebrated Virginia agriculture & forestry at the Virginia Agribusiness Council's 51st Annual Legislative Appreciation Banquet last evening.
