    Cites Lopez’s Leadership Supporting the Needs of Veterans in the General Assembly

    The Put Vets First! Political Action Committee (PAC) has endorsed Alfonso Lopez for re-election this November to represent the people of the 49th District in the Virginia House of Delegates.

    Alfonso Lopez’s extensive support for addressing the needs of veterans and the homeless community at large earned him the endorsement of the Put Vets First! PAC. Lopez’s work to expand Medicaid, establish the Affordable Housing Trust Fund, and improve grants available to small business owners directly address the needs of veterans.

    Of the 22 million veterans living in the US, over 100,000 will be homeless at some point this year, 570,000 are unemployed, and 4.3 million have a service connected disability.

    “Alfonso Lopez’s commitment to making sure recently separated servicemembers have access to the employment, housing, and healthcare services they need has greatly benefitted the more than 780,000 veterans living in Virginia. His continued work in the Virginia House of Delegates is vital to the wellbeing of our state’s vets. He is a true champion for veterans,” said MAJ Brian Hampton USAR (ret) Chairman, Put Vets First!.

    “I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Put Vets First! PAC for my re-election,” said Delegate Lopez. “While I’m proud to have worked with Governor McAuliffe to eradicate veterans’ homelessness in Virginia, there is more work that needs to be done throughout the Commonwealth to meet the needs of our veterans. I look forward to working with Put Vets First! PAC to continue the fight for veterans in the House of Delegates.”

    Alfonso Lopez has truly put the interests of the people of Virginia first. As the director of Governor Tim Kaine’s Virginia Liaison Office, Lopez oversaw all Federal Relations for the Commonwealth. He is currently seeking election to a fourth term in the VA House of Delegates.

    Since 2011, Put Vets First! PAC has worked to make veterans a top national priority by supporting the election of Champions for Veterans, raising the profile of veterans nationwide, and opposing the election of those who refuse to Put Vets First!
