Democratic candidate Dr. Mark Downey works as a pediatrician at Pediatric Associates of Williamsburg, a practice of Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters. He grew up in the Queens Lake neighborhood in upper York County and graduated from Bruton High School in 1984. He graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in Chemical Engineering, but after working for four years as a chemical engineer, decided to pursue a different path. He went to medical school at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond.
Downey’s campaign priorities include public education, women’s rights, health care access, common sense gun laws, fighting climate change, cyber safety, and helping our veterans.
Republican Amanda Batten and Libertatian James Jobe both lack sustainable plans on how they will make Viringia a safe and healthy place for all Virginians. Batten is anti-choice and doesn’t support sensible gun laws. Jobe supports the legalization of marijuana and believes there should be term limits on members of Congress.
Dr. Mark Downey is the more progressive choice in this race.
