On The Issues



Charlottesville and Albemarle are facing the fastest rising health insurance premiums in the country, and we can’t wait for a federal solution to our local problem. State leaders need to step up and expand public health insurance options so that every Virginian has access to quality, affordable healthcare.


Our climate crisis is already here. Charlottesville is a hub for innovative energy firms, and we should be leading the way to a clean energy future. It’s time to retire outdated fossil fuel infrastructure and say no to fracked gas pipelines.


Virginia’s lax election laws let corporations run the show in Richmond. We need to empower voters over donors so that every Virginian’s voice can be heard. There are easy steps, like automatic registration and early voting, but we have to think bigger. Reforms like ranked choice voting and independent redistricting will help revive a real, representative democracy.
