Dave on the Issues

 

TAXES: Dave believes Virginia’s taxes are high enough and has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge opposing increases in Virginia tax rates without corresponding cuts in other taxes. Dave will work to repeal this year’s Obamacare Medicaid Expansion.

SPENDING: Costs for everything rise because of inflation, but government’s size shouldn’t be increasing more than population growth. As your delegate, Dave LaRock will work to keep Virginia a conservative, low tax state by keeping spending at or below current levels and opposing expansion of welfare giveaway programs that threaten that status.

EDUCATION: Our community has some of the best schools in the nation, but we can make them even better. Dave’s Education Plan will give parents, teachers, and local officials more control over our schools by cutting red tape and over-regulation from Washington, DC and Richmond. We need to cut administrative bureaucracy and shift money to reduce class size and increase teacher compensation.

TRAFFIC AND ROADS: Northern Virginia pays a disproportionate share of taxes for transportation and we get far too little back. Northern Virginia should see our tax dollars spent here, rather than watch Richmond politicians distribute them around the state. Dave LaRock will fight to change that as Delegate. Dave will also continue to lead on efforts to ensure that transportation funding is directed to projects that do the most to improve congestion relief and safety. 

STANDING UP TO WASHINGTON: With President Obama determined to “change” America, Virginians need strong conservative leaders who will resist the left-wing agenda coming out of Washington today. Dave LaRock will be that leader.  Dave LaRock will fight as delegate to block, delay and obstruct any implementation of Obamacare in Virginia.

MOTORISTS RIGHTS: Dave LaRock will stand up for people who have to use their cars to get around, opposing wasteful road and transit projects that aren't necessary or cost-efficient. Dave will fight to ensure that our transportation funds are used to fix our legendary, worst-in-the-nation traffic congestion here in Northern Virginia.

AGRICULTURE: Agriculture and forestry combined are Virginia’s largest industry, and they support many other industries. They are extremely important as job-creators and in sustaining local communities here in the 33rd District. That makes agriculture and forestry extremely important to Dave, and will work to protect the interests of farmers while managing the state budget wisely.

CONSERVATIVE VALUES: Dave LaRock will be a Rock-Solid leader standing up for what we believe: pro-Life, pro-Second Amendment, and strong for all our conservative values.

WMATA / Metrorail

WMATA has been in downward spiral for many years, but I am encouraged by the leadership of GM/CEO Paul J. Wiedefeld has shown in making hard choices to turn the system around. There are still major structural issues to be resolved, including governance, management and labor issues, before we should throw more money at the problem. Virginia has led the way on reforming WMATA, passing key improvements to the WMATA Compact years and even decades ago. If we get to the point where WMATA has been “fixed” and still have a need for increased subsidies, station-area tax districts or other options are better than the region-wide regional sales tax. 


Toll Relief

I am fighting to ensure that tolls on the Dulles Toll Road, Dulles Greenway, and I-66 are kept as low as possible. Read more to see progress that is being made on this issue.


DMV

One of the most frequent constituent concerns my office and I assist with involve the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). We are usually able to help resolve issues quickly for constituents.

DMV tries to make as many transactions as possible available online in an attempt to reduce costs and wait times. DMV Full-service Customer Service Centers are located in Leesburg and Winchester, DMV Select locations are in Berryville and Purcellville, and DMV 2 Go, the agency’s mobile full-service customer service center, also travels the district.

Read more about all these options here.


2nd Amendment

I am completely open about where I stand on gun rights: I support them 100%. I’m proud of my “A” rating from the NRA and high scores from the VCDL. Every session I’ve introduced legislation to protect the rights of gun owners. And I've fought back against Gov. McAuliffe, AG Herring and other Democrats’ plans to strip Virginian gun owners of their rights.


Local Transportation Projects

While I work to ensure our transportation funds are spent wisely at the state level, I do so partially to increase funding available for much-needed projects in the 33rd District. Information on current and soon-coming projects is here.


Life

I am committed to protecting the unborn. As a delegate, I have introduced legislation and budget amendments to protect Life each session.

Learn more about my efforts and the science supporting the need to protect the unborn here.


Lyme Disease

I've lived in Northern Virginia for more than three decades.
It's clear that our community is under a growing threat: Lyme disease. This potentially devastating disease is especially prevalent in the 33rd district. More than 25% of all of the confirmed cases of Lyme in Virginia were reported in Loudoun, Clarke, or Frederick Counties.

All of us have friends, family, or loved ones that are struggling with the physical and mental cost of this debilitating illness. We can't wait. We need leadership. We need to act - NOW!

Dave's Transportation Plan

Northern Virginia's transportation system is broken, but this is a spending problem, not a revenue problem. Read how Dave's common-sense efforts have already saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. We need progress, not politics, to get Northern Virginia's traffic moving.


Dave’s Plan for Virginia

Dave will fight for responsible spending, traffic congestion relief, making our schools even better, and protecting our rights.


Keeping Virginia the Best State for Business

Virginia is America's Best State for Business, according to Forbes. Forbes says Virginia's "diverse economy, strong workforce and pro-business regulatory climate" propels the Old Dominion state to the No. 1 ranking. Dave will work hard to keep Virginia business-friendly.


Dave's Education Plan

Our community has some of the best schools in the nation, but Dave has a plan to make them even better....
