Check out the first Facebook town hall by one of my favorite fresh(wo)men delegates – Jennifer Carroll Foy (note: I’ve heard her described as a “rock star” as well as a future Speaker of the House, and I’d definitely agree she has the potential). Key points by Foy included: 1) she is for Medicaid expansion, even if it includes a work requirement of some sort, as it’s crucial to provide health care coverage to hundreds of thousands of Virginians; 2) we badly need gun safety legislation, but unfortunately almost every bill along those lines was killed on party-line votes (e.g., by Republicans) in committee; and 3) if we want to pass progressive legislation, we need to take control of the Virginia General Assembly in 2019.

There's no paywall on Blue Virginia, and we definitely want to keep it that way! If you want to help support our work, you can donate here - thanks! Also, you can sign up for our weekly email list here.
