Improving our Schools
Glen believes every child deserves to get a quality education at a safe school, regardless of where they live. Glen fights for more funding for education every year - so that more of our tax dollars are spent in the classroom. As the husband of a school teacher, Glen understands that great teachers are our best asset to ensure kids succeed and worked to recruit and retain top notch teachers by providing 5% pay raises this year.
Freezing College Tuition
Glen is a strong leader for Virginia students and their families by working to make college more affordable and accessible. Growing student loan debt is a significant problem, and Glen is fighting against extreme tuition and fee hikes by supporting freezing tuition. He introduced bills to cap the rate of tuition growth and provide guaranteed tuition costs for 4 years, so students and their families aren’t priced out of higher education.
Increasing Access to Affordable Healthcare
As your Senator, Glen is working to improve healthcare outcomes and affordability. Glen has introduced legislation to protect patients from surprise balance billing and to create additional low-cost insurance options that include coverage for pre-existing conditions, preventative care, and essential health benefits. Glen is working to make it easier and more affordable for small businesses to obtain coverage for their employees.
Growing Our Economy & Cutting Taxes
Glen is focused on making Virginia a better state for our local businesses to grow and create new, good paying jobs. He was a chief co-sponsor of the second largest tax cut in Virginia history, which included the first meaningful increase in our standard deduction in a generation and an additional tax rebate this fall. Glen has a proven record of advancing balanced budgets that invest in our top priorities, like public education, transportation, and public safety, without raising taxes or fees.
