Why this Race Matters most:
Jennifer Foy is working on behalf of the citizens of District 2. With the incumbent Republican not running and a majority Democratic electorate, this race has a strong chance of having a Democrat elected, if Democrats show up to the polls.
Side by Side on Key Policy Issues:
|Democrat Position||Republican Position|
|Reinvest in our schools to remain competitive and prepare the future generation. Increase teacher salaries. Champion for early childhood education.||Against Federal involvement. Wants to leverage technology to create and expand access to general education and technical training. Wants parent “tailored” education for each child.|
|Women’s rights||Equal pay for women and access to health care for all.||Supports Heritage for America which wants to defund Planned Parenthood|
|Transportation||Extend the metro into Prince William County; fight for greater Virginia Department of Transportation funds to extend HOV lanes and improve secondary roads in our area.||Collaboration, better planning, technological solutions (such as traffic management software from the company he works for).|
