I believe I have been a strong advocate and voice for the people of the 100th District and would like to thank my constituents for their support of my family and me. Representing this community is a responsibility that I do not take lightly. I have fought for worthwhile investments in our unique community and will always put Virginia and the 100th District first. I have been instrumental in bringing 125 million dollars in state projects to the 100th District, ranging from the new Eastern Shore Community College to the UAV runway at Wallops Island, a new campus for VIMS in Wachapreague, and support for the Eastern Shore Public Library.
