Fighting for You: A Message from Barbara Favola

Dear Friends,


I, along with my Democratic Senate colleagues made a difference in this last General Assembly Session.  We fought to keep K-12 class sizes small, we protected women from the personhood bill, we exposed Bob McDonnell’s invasive and unnecessary ultra-sound bill and we fought for more funding for the Rail to Dulles project.  In spite of these challenges, I can truly say it was an honor and privilege to represent you.


You might also want to note how some key groups evaluated my performance.  Here it goes:  I scored:  80% from the VA Chamber of Commerce, 100% from the VA League of Conservation Voters and 100% from NARAL.  Also, I am honored to receive the 2012 Virginia Peters Legislative Hero Award from the Housing Association of Nonprofit Developers, or HAND, for past work in advocating for affordable housing.


To hear more about Richmond and the political landscape ahead, please join me at these upcoming parties:
