Healthcare: WV 1, VA 0
Did you know West Virginians have more options for healthcare than we have in Virginia?

That's because Virginia's General Assembly refuses to expand Medicaid, which would provide health coverage to hundreds of thousands of working families struggling to get by.  

We need new leadership in Richmond that will work toward the goal of affordable healthcare to all Virginians.
Jobs and Wages
Brent's first job in high school was flipping burgers in Timberville for minimum wage. Most low-wage workers in Virginia today are adults struggling to support their families.

Virginians should not have to work more than 40 hours a week to enjoy a decent standard of living. 

As delegate, he will fight to raise Virginia's minimum wage to a living wage, and work to implement a solar infrastructure program that would create tens of thousands of well-paying jobs.
Pipelines, Fracking, & Water
Brent grew up fishing and swimming in Shenandoah Valley streams and rivers, including at Blue Hole in Bergton. 

Clean air and water is not guaranteed to future generations. We have to stand together to defend it. 

Brent is opposed to fracking and the proposed pipelines in Virginia.
Fair Play - and Elections
We wouldn't tolerate cheating in baseball, so why is it okay for our democracy? 

Voters should pick their legislators, not the other way around.

Partisan gerrymandering and corporate money in politics is a structural block to fair elections and making sure voters' voices heard.

Issues Based on Valley Values
  • A Fair Shot at Prosperity for all individuals and families. 
  •   A Fair Chance to Start and Grow Local Businesses.  Most job growth comes from small and medium-sized local businesses. Stop rigging the system for big corporate interests.
  •  A Fair Chance to be Heard for all citizens. Get big money out of politics so our representatives are beholden to the people first.  One person, one vote.
  •  A Fair Share of Democracy for everyone. Stop gerrymandering and let everyone’s vote count equally.
  •  A Fair Shake in the Justice System. Decriminalize and reduce sentences for petty offenses.
  •  Fair and Equal Pay for Women because they deserve it.
Liberty and the Common Good
  •  Protect Access to Affordable Healthcare. Virginia must expand Medicaid, expand mental health coverage, and explore healthcare solutions that work best for individuals and businesses.
  •  Protect Private Property and Public Resources. No eminent domain for private gain. We must not sacrifice our clean water and public health for out-of-state profit.
    No pipelines. No fracking.
  •  Protect the Land, Water, and Beauty of Our Valley because our health, our prosperity, and our children’s futures rely on it. Green alternatives are not only cleaner, they are also offer access to vibrant new industries.
  •  Protect Women’s Health Services and Right to Choose. A woman with access to information, birth control, and healthcare is far less likely to face an unwanted pregnancy. If she does, she must be free to choose the option best for her own health and future.
  •  Stand for a Living Wage so no one has to work more than full time to afford a home, food, and healthcare for themselves and their families.
  •  Stand Together with Our Neighbors because their struggle is our struggle, regardless of race, religion, orientation, or where they were born. 
  •  Stand for Justice for Workers including their right to organize, financial assistance for workplace injury, and safe working conditions.
  •  Stand for Our Future. Affordable community college and training programs for emerging markets will allow local businesses to expand with homegrown talent.
  •  Stand for a Second Chance. Provide treatment for addiction because we can’t afford to write anyone off.
