Blue Louisa: A blog Covering Central Virginia & national politics from a progressive perspective
What a difference Amy Laufer would make in the Virginia Senate. Drawing upon her personal experiences and demonstrated commitment to a better tomorrow, she would be a welcome change working on behalf of the 17th District.
Amy recognizes that all Virginians need access to affordable healthcare—not simply cheap insurance that leaves the poor and the sick without access to the care they need.
As part of this access, Amy is committed to fighting to expand rural broadband, which is so critical to expanding business opportunities and student achievement.
A former math and science teacher, Amy knows first-hand how critical investing in teachers and schools is to creating a viable future for all students in our community.
Let’s put Amy to work putting an end to gerrymandering through fair third-party redistricting, reforming our criminal justice system, and decreasing mass incarceration, while providing avenues to help former prisoners become full participants in our society.
Women, Amy will fight for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment as well as a woman’s individual right to choose the course of her life—rather than letting others choose for her.
I could go on, but limited space pushes me to the bottom line: Amy will fight for a level playing field, equal opportunity, increased investment in Virginia, and the enjoyment of Virginia’s promise and prosperity by all its citizens. Vote Amy Laufer on November 5.
