Shenandoah Valley Pride Festival
On Saturday, July 21st, I had the honor of being the first ever state-elected official to speak at the Shenandoah Valley Pride Festival. Unfortunately, state officials representing the Shenandoah Valley all oppose equal rights for the Rainbow (LGBT+) Community. But it was wonderful to see the love, solidarity, perseverance, and yes, pride, of local Rainbow folk. I was glad to show the thousands of people who enjoyed the day's festivities that they do have people fighting for them in Richmond.
The Bad News: Every single Republican in the House of Delegates supports discrimination against Rainbow Virginians.
The Good News: Every single Democrat in the House of Delegates opposes discrimination against Rainbow Virginians.
Thank you to Shenandoah for standing up for yourselves and the rest of Virginia!
Alexandria Living Wage Certification Program
With LaJuanna Russell, President and CEO of Business Management Associates,|
a Living Wage Gold Star Certified business.
On July 16th, I was happy to show support for the launch of the Alexandria Living Wage Certification Program to recognize employers in the city who pay a living wage and embrace ethical business practices. The certification program was founded by the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy and Virginia Theological Seminary. No one should live in poverty, and all workers deserve to be paid a living wage. Every business in Alexandria should strive to earn this program's Gold Star. Apply today; email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Delegate Kathy Tran on Inside Scoop TV
Last Monday, on my Inside Scoop television show, I had the pleasure of interviewing Delegate Kathy Tran, a new delegate from Southern Fairfax County, with whom I have the privilege of serving in the Virginia House of Delegates. Born in Vietnam to immigrant parents, Kathy has a fascinating life story to share and a wealth of experience that informs her values.
Certificate of Public Need Working Group
Tuesday, I drove down to Richmond to serve on the Joint House-Senate Committee overseeing Certificate of Public Need (COPN) reform in Virginia. COPN is the method by which Virginia certifies medical care facilities. If the certification process is too strict, it can lead to less free-market competition and therefore higher prices for consumers. But if the process is too lax, indigent people are often not well served, as new facilities cherry-pick only those who can pay and leave unprofitable care to hospitals.
