ISSUES

Jobs and the Economy

Virginia is once again the number one state to do business in. Low taxes and fewer regulations lead to more jobs with better pay. Scott will safeguard your hard earned tax dollars, while providing money for the core services of government. He will work to maintain our Right to Work status and follow the fiscally responsible policies that have earned Virginia our AAA bond rating.

Education

Our students deserve the highest quality education possible, regardless of their ZIP Code. Scott will advocate for additional funding for public schools and teacher pay raises, give public schools with more flexibility to provide a quality education, and ensure that funding goes directly to our teachers and the classroom. He will work to build on the steps taken to address the teacher shortage in Virginia to ensure we retain and attract the best teachers possible for our children.

Healthcare

Scott believes increased competition and choice are the keys to affordable healthcare. He opposes government run or “one size fits all” policies that are driving up healthcare costs. Scott supports allowing small businesses to pool together to purchase health insurance and allowing healthy individuals to purchase catastrophic and individuals in-between jobs to purchase short-term plans. He will pursue measures to increase healthcare access, affordability, and choice.

Law Enforcement and Public Safety

Scott is an ardent supporter and friend of law enforcement, EMS, and Firefighters. He will work with our public safety officials to address the opioid crisis, fund our local law enforcement officials, and optimize sentencing guidelines to ensure public safety. Scott will promote laws that punish criminals and oppose efforts to weaken penalties on criminals.

2nd Amendment

As a hunter and Life Member of the NRA, Scott is committed to protecting the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. He will fight all attempts by those who wish to infringe upon them. Punishing criminals, not law-abiding citizens exercising their Constitutional rights, is the best way to prevent gun violence.

Traditional Family Values

Scott is a pro-life, social conservative. He will pursue policies that support and strengthen our families and work to foster a culture that respects life.
