Protecting Our environment

The 42nd House District is home to Mason Neck State Park, one of our region's greatest natural treasures. We must take action to not only protect Virginia's natural heritage, but protect the future of our planet. And if our president refuses to address climate change, it is up to states to lead the way.

That's why Kathy opposes fracking and off-shore drilling in Virginia, and the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley gas pipelines. It's why I will never accept campaign contributions from Virginia's energy monopolies, Dominion and Appalachian Power.

Instead, we need to focus on growing our clean energy industries in Virginia. We can be a global leader and innovator on solar, wind, and other renewable sources of energy, but it requires leadership and urgent action.
