Democratic candidate Karen Mallard has served the Virginia Beach community as a public school teacher, union leader, political organizer, PTA board member, and little league board member. Mallard was outraged when House Republicans voted to adjourn a special session on gun violence without considering a single bill. She vows to support Medicaid expansion and has organized for environmental preservation in Virginia since childhood.
Her opponent, incumbent Republican Delegate Glenn Davis, has opposed efforts to make Virginia safer by implementing common sense gun laws. Delegate Davis also supported legislation that sought to notify ICE whenever undocumented residents were imprisoned, giving local law enforcement agents unecessary additonal work.
Mallard is the more progressive choice in this race.
