Thanks for visiting my Website! I have represented part of Newport News in the Virginia House of Delegates since January, 2020 and I hope you will give me the honor of continuing to represent you in Richmond. As your Delegate, my goal is to make Newport News and Virginia the best place to work and raise a family, connect to educational opportunities and enjoy a healthy lifestyle in a green, livable community.
