For all Virginians

Join our team

It’s time for a plan to get Virginia growing again with across-the-board policy reforms that cover taxes, regulation, education, transportation, healthcare and public safety. This year I will put forward a serious and substantive vision for Virginia to create jobs, raise take-home pay and help people lift themselves out of poverty. Our vision is one based on our Constitutional principles of limited, effective government. Toward that end, I have created nine policy working groups led by members of the General Assembly that are working to develop fresh ideas to invigorate the Virginia economy, improve our quality of life and ensure Virginia remains the best place to live, work and raise a family. In the months ahead, we will lay out specific policies on a number of issues that matter to you. It’s not too late to get involved! Below are the policy working groups, the challenges we will address and the principles we’re applying to develop our policy.

Mental Health, Addiction & Recovery

Virginia is facing an addiction crisis. There were over 1,000 drug-related deaths in Virginia last year, and drug overdoses surpassed both motor-vehicle related fatalities and gun-related fatalities…

Public Safety

Virginians must feel safe in our homes, businesses, schools, public gathering places and on our roads and highways. Our state police force is dwindling in numbers and being stretched thin, while…

Veterans & Military Affairs

We are proud to be home to nearly 800,000 veterans and their families. Our veterans and active duty military personnel contribute to Virginia and our nation in immeasurable ways. Our state…

Tax Reform

Ed knows that it is time to get Virginia growing again with sweeping policy reforms that cover taxes, regulation, education, transportation, healthcare and public safety. In the months ahead, Ed will…
