Representing Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax

Why vote in "uncontested" races like mine? Does your vote matter when there's only one candidate on the ballot? YES.

Why? Because every ballot has a write-in line. And we still need a majority of votes to win. Republicans in my district have asked Republicans to use that write-in line to vote me out of office! The only way this unorthodox strategy could possibly prevail is if you don't show up to vote. So please show up! It only takes about five minutes. You can vote any time this week through Saturday or, of course, on Election Day, Tuesday November 5.


I'm proud to represent portions of the City of Alexandria, Arlington County, and Fairfax County. The ballot differs, however, in each jurisdiction I represent.

Not all of the local candidates appear on the ballot as Democrats, but you should know that every one of these candidates has the support of the local Democratic Party Committee. 



Coming Down to the Wire: It's game time.

Donald Trump is likely to face a vote to impeach him before Thanksgiving. If that happens, the Senate will likely decide whether or not to remove him from office by March.

You can have a major impact on whether Trump is removed from office.



Did you get your tax rebate check last week?  If you're married, the tax rebate check should be $220. 

You almost didn't receive that check. Virginia Republicans pushed hard to make all the benefits of the Trump Tax Plan flow to the richest Virginians, but we Democrats fought tooth and nail to make sure that all Virginians would benefit. 



Rosh Hashanah is about so much more than marking the passage of time.

It is a celebration of new beginnings, renewal, and family.

I am finding these themes especially potent this year, with elections right around the corner here in Virginia.

400 years after the founding of the Commonwealth, this year's elections offer us an opportunity to start a new chapter in Virginia's history, to re-create a Virginia where all families thrive.
