A Fresh face AND voice for fairfax county in Richmond
Ken is a strong leader on transportation and traffic relief
Ken was the pivotal vote to bring the Silver Line to Dulles Airport and Loudoun County in 2012 and has been at the forefront of advocating (and getting built) a number of highways in the Greater DC area. He will advocate for more interchanges on Fairfax County Parkway and Route 50, which are often bottle necks, PLUS getting I-95 widened all the way to Richmond and widening I 81 in the Shenandoah Valley.
Supporting Gov. Youngkin's agenda
Gov. Glenn Youngkin is doing an excellent job as governor. He has approval ratings well over 55%. He has cut taxes and regulation and supports Parents' Rights to have say in their kids' education. Ken will go to Richmond to support jobs and fiscal and regulatory responsibility, and further decreases in taxes to give Virginian's a break from crushing inflation. BUT he will ALWAYS put the NEEDS of Fairfax County and its towns and cities FIRST.
Ken (right) with Gov. Glenn Youngkin
Ken supports a state Parents Bill of Rights and enabling access to curriculum by taxpayers. He also supports greater transparency in local government including school boards. We must teach kids how to think, not what to think, and ensure public schools still have Honors and Gifted and Talented programs, while giving struggling kids the help they need to succeed -- and ensure all children are safe at school. He also supports boosting teacher salaries, police, firefighters.

Crime and Law Enforcement
Virginia's violent crime rate saw a 10% increase over last year, and the property crime rate also jumped.
Meanwhile, in Fairfax County, In 2022, there were 936 crimes against person cases across the county compared to 1,187 as of Feb. 15, 2023 -- and property crimes (like theft, breakins) were up by 925 cases in just one year!
In addition, there are some 180 open positions for police officers for the County Police. Across Virginia, and much of the nation, departments in urban areas cannot find officers. Why?
It's because politicians "defanged" the police and prosecutors with so-called "Criminal Justice Reform" laws to appease extremist activists. Elimination of cash bail, allowing someone to shoplift up to $900 without facing felony charges are among the "reforms" that must be rolled back when the new General Assembly starts session in January -- and I hope to be there to help.
