Democratic candidate Beverly Harrison is running against Republican Incumbent Delegate Todd Gilbert. Harrison lives in Woodstock with her two children. She believes that affordable healthcare coverage is a right. She promises to fight to expand access to life-saving mental health resources and provide much-needed support for families struggling with the consequences of addiction. Harrison supports the Equal Right Amendment, lifts up local businesses, and advocates for affordable housing. She also wants to bring broadband access to rural communities.
Delegate Gilbert serves as the Republican Majority Leader in the House of Delegates. During his 12 years in office, Delegate Gilbert has been a staunch conservative. He supports so-called “right-to-work” laws that benefit corporations at the expense of workers. Gilbert is anti-union and opposes raising the minimum wage. He is anti-choice and has voted to defund Planned Parenthood, making it more difficult for low-income people to access abortion. Gilbert also strongly opposed Medicaid expansion.
Beverly Harrison is the more progressive choice in this race because of her support of health care access and affordable housing.
