I am proud to endorse Mavis Taintor in the 2017 primary and general elections for State Delegate in the 33rd District. Virginians want leaders who are about protecting and creating good paying jobs, racial and economic justice for all and committed to fighting for true representation in Richmond. Our district is diverse and vast and requires resources to run a strong campaign, intellect to take on the divisive voices, and an ability to connect with people.
Mavis has the experience, leadership, and character for the job. Her story is truly inspiring. She rose in the ranks of the financial industry when no other women were there, started her own business and grew it successfully, and garnered a reputation for getting things done. Her progressive values show from her time with Head Start and her participation in the Million Mom March against gun violence.
I know what it means to represent people and I believe Mavis has what it takes to represent all Virginians. I’ll be casting my ballot for Mavis Taintor on June 13 and I urge everyone in District 33 to do the same.
