As an owner of two local restaurants, Marie knows a thing or two about small business. She understands how damaging Ralph Northam’s shutdown policies have been on small businesses across Virginia.
Small Business Owner
I know the importance of small business to local economies. Owning restaurants in multiple locations, I have experienced the hardship of the pandemic and have found ways to stay open and provide jobs for our staff. As your Delegate, I will fight for our small business owners and farmers, and work tirelessly to lower taxes, lessen regulations, and immediately open our economy.
When running a business, you have to be able to balance a budget and not be wasteful in spending. These are basic principles that also need to be applied in government. I will work to eliminate wasteful government spending and ensure your tax dollars are handled with care – not spent to enforce gun control or fund abortion.
The career politicians in Richmond have shredded the God-given, constitutional rights of Virginians, so Marie is fighting to restore the rights and liberties of the law-abiding citizens of the Commonwealth.
Definition: a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors
I will defend with all that I have our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights. When our community needed leaders to step up and defend our 2A rights, I was the only candidate in this race that did. I spoke in favor of 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Counties in Montgomery and Floyd Counties. I hold concealed carry classes at my restaurants and my managers even carry concealed to protect our patrons. I am proud to be your 2nd Amendment champion. (new paragraph) As your Delegate, I will work to end gun-free zones, prevent restrictions on gun owners, and protect our churches from forced closure by the liberal left.
Safety and Security
I have the utmost respect and appreciation for our law enforcement and first responder personnel. In Richmond, I will stand up to the liberal forces trying to defund our police. In fact, I will be law enforcement’s strongest advocate and fight to fully-fund our police and public safety efforts.
I am the only candidate willing to address the major flaws that need to be corrected in our election process. As your Delegate, I will fight to improve our election integrity, including restricting last-minute changes from unelected bureaucrats, requiring photo ID to vote, signature matching absentee ballots, and updating voter rolls to ensure only eligible U.S. citizens can vote.
For far too long, Southwest Virginia has been ignored. Richmond’s focus is never on us. I will ensure Southwest Virginia does not get overlooked.
I was taught to respect my elders and honor my mother and father. My father and several men in our family have served in the Armed Forces. I am proud of each of them. As Delegate, I will honor and protect our veterans. I will protect our most vulnerable – seniors and the unborn.
Love For The Area
The NRV is our home and I believe it is the most beautiful place on Earth. I will defend our heritage, history, and values from being erased.
