Virginia State Senate, District 11
Amanda is running for office because the laws of Virginia are not working for the people of Virginia. Individuals are struggling with how to pay for their food and medication and are having to make difficult choices. Families are scared to send their kids to school because of gun violence and public schools are being ignored and underfunded while underpaid teachers are expected to give up their lives (literally) for students. The infrastructure in the Commonwealth has been neglected so that businesses will only come for the tax breaks but lack the structures they need in quality roads and green energy to stay. Virginians need to make changes. Amanda plans to bring representation to the 11th Senate District that works for and with the people who live there to provide a better quality of life. The current representation has lost touch with constituents and is only interested in what the special interest groups want. The 11th State Senate District is dealing with some real crises and Amanda is a problem-solver that can address those crises.
