Help Drive S.W. Virginia Forward
First and foremost, I'm a dad, and one who wants the best for his children. I want my children to have the same advantages in life that my brother and I had as we were growing up in Roanoke. I want them to have quality medical care, good schools, and safe neighborhoods. I want them to know that, like their father, upon graduation from college they will be able to return to their hometown, and that there will be plenty of opportunities awaiting them. This dream is one held by all parents, for all of our children.
In order to see this dream happen for my children I have decided to take action. Through prayer and introspection, I have determined that what I want most, is to become the voice for those who feel that they’re no longer being heard in Richmond. With my innovative approach, business experience, and eagerness to serve, I know that I’m the right voice for Virginia’s 19th Senate District. I am asking for your support, your prayers, and your vote. When you send me to Richmond, I can guarantee you that your concerns will be heard and that your interests will be served.
