Happy Thanksgiving! This is my very favorite holiday. I hope that you and your loved ones are enjoying a relaxing and restorative holiday.

As I reflect on the past year, I am grateful for my family, friends, community members and colleagues. My girls Hannah and Sophie Claire are not home as much as Glenn and I would like and we are excited to spend time with them over the next few days. We are hosting Glenn’s family and are excited to have a full house.

Early in December, I will be going to visit my family in Alabama. Getting time to spend with family and friends makes me all the more mindful of those who don’t have such fortune. All of us should reach out to show that we care about our neighbors who may not have anyone to share the holiday with.

At Thanksgiving dinner each person at our table will share a moment of gratitude. You will be on my mind as I share mine.

Wishing you all the best!

Kindest regards,
Jennifer

We did it! I'm honored to be re-elected to the 33rd District in the Senate of Virginia and I look forward to continuing my work in the General Assembly. Together we will work to expand affordable healthcare, improve our schools and roads, build an economy that works for everyone and continue our push for gun-violence prevention. Thanks so much to all of you who have been there for me! Thanks to all of you supporters and volunteers who voted, knocked on doors, made phone calls, and donated.


Thank you to all of you who have been with us for this seemingly never ending campaign year and to those of you who have been with me over the past 6 years in each of my 8 races. You know who you are! It’s been a marathon and a great team effort!

I especially want to thank my husband Glenn and our daughters Hannah and Sophie Claire, and my mom Dianne. You have been with me through thick and thin and I love you all so much.

Thank you to my campaign team- Chad, Cierra, Les, Temi, Fayo, Sharika, Leslie, Adam, Randy, and Mallie for your tireless work and for picking up the slack when I was down for the count last spring with my neck injury. We knocked on thousands of doors and had countless quality conversations with voters. It was an amazing coordinated effort for everyone on the ticket.

And my wonderful legislative team Karen and Kathy who kept the trains running all year! You stuck with me through spinal surgery, two primaries and two general elections in one year!

Finally, I would like to thank my opponent, Suzanne Fox.

And I thank you for being on my team. Together we will make Virginia a better place for everyone. Now let’s get to work!

Kindest regards,

Jennifer

Tomorrow you have the chance to use your voice and I ask for your vote. I am running for re-election in the 33rd District in the Virginia Senate and I ask for your vote. Believe it or not, this is the 4th race I’ve run in a year. Once again, this is a contested race and I am proud to say that I’ve earned endorsements from all sectors – the Teachers, the Firefighters, the NOVA Tech PAC and NOVA Chamber of Commerce, the environmental groups, the labor groups, Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice VA, and the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence. I have been working collaboratively in the region to solve community problems with stakeholders, the business, and the nonprofit community over the past three decades.
I have a long history of working in a bipartisan manner at the federal, state, and local level, and that is what I will continue to do.

I hope that you will agree that my record speaks for itself. During my tenure in the Virginia General Assembly, I have supported the most important economic initiatives for the Commonwealth including the successful passage of Medicaid expansion and a $1 billion investment in our public schools giving our teachers a much-needed raise. I advocated for and helped pass the economic initiatives to keep the United Airlines hub at Dulles Airport, saving 35,000 jobs in our community, supported investments in the Port of Virginia, and worked to bring Amazon’s HQ2 to our region. Even with these advances in Virginia, we still do not have an economy that works for everyone.

You can count on me to work to change that. I will continue to promote policies that provide all of our residents with an equal opportunity to succeed. I will continue to support workforce development and educational opportunities so that residents have a pathway for career growth and so that we can fill our 21st-century jobs with highly qualified workers. I will continue to work with stakeholders to find funding for our congested roads and affordable transportation solutions. I will support a livable wage because all people should be able to live with dignity working one full-time job. I will support legislation that brings a rapid transition to zero-carbon energy and green jobs to Virginia. I will continue to support the redistricting amendment to our constitution and enabling legislation to put an end to gerrymandering so that every vote counts and to expand access to the polls. I will continue to stand up for women to pass the Equal Rights Amendment and to protect their right to make personal private decisions for themselves.

Working together to get things done, I will continue to be a voice for those who often do not have a seat at the table no matter who you love, where you come from, the color of your skin, or your place of worship. I ask for your vote so that I can continue this important work.

Kindest regards,
Jennifer

Seems this isn't the first time the Elistists in government abuse the Constitution and illegally disarmed the citizen. https://www.facebook.com/153558388549863/posts/634296337142730/?substory_index=0
Well it's worthless to remind you of the Constitutional protections in re firearms. You leftwing Liberal aka Socialist want an unarmed serfdom to rule over. One problem....you idiots picked Virginia....and "We the People" will resist your gun grabbing, campaign against you and sue you folks as soon as any law is in effect. You folks will be in court spending money to defend your attacks on the Constitutional rights of Virginians. Kind of hard to spend on reelection campaigns when your hiring attorneys.
Good afternoon, There is a bill that is trying to be passed right, HB1090, that hands over way too much power to a federally appointed body, the ACIP. This bill would require all Virginia students to follow the recommended CDC schedule. The World Health Organization just questioned the safety of vaccines at their recent Vaccine Safety Summit. Will you please stand on the right side of history and oppose HB1090? 🤗Thank you for all your hard work!!
Please vote no on HB 1090. This bill is an overreach of civil liberties and removes state legislators and citizens from having any say in all future vaccine mandates for Virginia citizens. Any medical procedure should be a parent's right to informed choice and should not be mandated in force by an agency not elected by the people
Vote NO on HB 1090! More than 90% of kids in Virginia comply with the current VA((ine schedule, so there is no need for this bill. It was conveyed that Va’s health dept did NOT REQUEST this bill! Every one of the extra childhood vaccines on the recommended schedule is already available to all families who want them. Pediatricians already do a good job of ensuring their patients comply with the CDC/ACIP suggested schedule. There is no need to force their use by law which is what HB 1090 does. This bill automatically adds all future vaccines recommended by the CDC to the list mandated for VA schools. There are currently 264 vaccines in active development therefore the future costs of this bill are unlimited and unknown. Listen to your constituents and all of us from Virginia who have been working tirelessly since January calling, emailing, writing posts, visiting Richmond, and having meetings with legislative aids and committee members so our voices can be heard. Do not continue to silence our voices yet be our voices and champion for justice, freedom, and our rights. Thank you!
Please oppose HB1090. This bill may shorten a process for Virginia legislators but it puts children at risk. This bill best serves the pharmaceutical companies and their profits. It will write a blank check and mandate all further CDC recommendations. Since long term testing is not done, this creates a situation where the children of Virginia become the post market data, or long term results pool. There are over 200 pending to be added to the recommendation, none have ever been true placebo tested. This has become a 30 billion dollar industry for pharma, and the number is is steadily rising. Please do the right thing and oppose this bill, stand up for the children of Virginia, they deserve better than this.
Hi Jennifer, Is there legislation in the works that will limit the cost of insulin as they've done in other states? Thank you.
