"As a small business owner, I have seen firsthand how COVID-19 has impacted our community," said Davis-Younger. "In Richmond, we need leaders who will lead us out of this crisis and create a post-COVID economy that works for all--not just some. Hala Ayala is the best candidate for Lieutenant Governor to accomplish that, and I am proud to support her."
As her colleague, I’ve seen how Delegate Kathleen Murphy is a fierce champion for Virginians. In her community and in the General Assembly, Kathleen advocates for veterans, military families, and transportation solutions, protects women’s rights, and promotes gun sense policies. We need Delegate Murphy’s pragmatic approach to progressive policymaking, which is why I am proud to endorse her.
I am proud to endorse Briana Sewell for the 51st House District. I’ve watched Briana grow as a leader in this community and I know she will be a champion for the 51st District. In Richmond, she will continue to move Virginia forward and fight for working families by improving transit, fully funding public schools, and increasing access to affordable healthcare.
While I wish I had better news, I have to notify you that COVID cases in Virginia are rising. We are now averaging about 4,000 cases per day, on average. This number is much higher than it has been anytime during this pandemic.
While we spend the holiday season each year with our loved ones, going out to shopping malls and restaurants, and doing other similar social activities, we must practice social distancing and other precautions this year.
With Thanksgiving coming up, many of you will want to gather with your loved ones. I am asking you to make one more sacrifice and limit any in-person social gatherings during this holiday season. We need to do this so more Virginians can see next year's Thanksgiving, and many more after that.
