Letter to the Editor, May 24, 2021: Carroll Foy can move Virginia forward in every way | Letters
Carroll Foy can lead Va.
There is no simpler way to put it: Virginians will make bold strides in affordable health care, criminal justice reform, education, environment, gender equality, housing affordable, gun violence prevention and racial justice by electing Jennifer Carroll Foy as governor. Carroll Foy has demonstrated consistency, commitment and determination throughout his life in public service. It is time for Virginia to grow up with a leader who will bring fresh and invigorating ideas to serve all communities in our Commonwealth. Carroll Foy has always done things for his district and others across Virginia by leading and supporting the passage of legislation that sits with working class Virginians. As a delegate, Carroll Foy passed legislation reforming the cash bond system, requiring law enforcement officers to undergo training in de-escalation techniques and implicit bias and led the amendment on the equal rights in law as a main sponsor. Carroll Foy brings to the governor of Virginia a vision he has yet to experience.
She brought this vision to her Prince William County community by passing legislation that created more opportunities for students to take computer coding courses, passing the Equal Dress Code Act and improving the ‘broadband access in rural areas. She took the initiative to come to the Chamber of Delegates to serve her community and come up with real solutions. She overcame the odds of running against a Republican incumbent and winning in her race for delegate because her message, reputation and life experience resonated with Virginians. I support Carroll Foy because she has supported Virginia in actively advocating for increased funding for rent relief programs, paid sick leave and increased safety standards for workers, and common sense legislation on safety. gun safety. His governorship will encompass consistency, morality and diligence. There is a lot more to do here in Virginia, and I know Carroll Foy will.
