Defend Our Law Enforcement

August 5, 2021

I’m in Richmond for the Special Session that Governor Northam called to allocate the over $4 billion in federal relief money that Virginia received.

He might as well have just called the Democrats to Richmond because we Republicans have had little to no ability to advocate for any of our priorities. 

Despite this, we fought for increased funding for law enforcement – sheriff’s deputies, state police and local police departments. Over the opposition of nearly all Democrats in the Senate, we managed to carry the day for and win more funding for deputies, but not for the other men and women who are on the front lines, keeping our communities safe. Even the funding for deputies has a long way to travel. House Democrats unanimously rejected a similar proposal in constructing their budget. 

Will you chip in $100, $50, $25, or even $10 today to help us stand up to liberals who want to silence our support for law enforcement and continue to take away police funding?

This is an incredibly important issue as across the nation we see time and time again police officers disrespected, discredited, underpaid, and devalued.
 Chip in today if you can!
