Democratic candidate Starla Kiser is running against Republican William Wampler for an open seat in the 4th district. Kiser received two degrees from Harvard––a medical degree at Harvard Medical School and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration at the Harvard Kennedy School with a focus on international development and health policy. As a doctor, Kiser supports increased access to health care like Medicaid expansion. She believes Virginia should increase access to mental health care and substance abuse treatment. Kiser also supports increasing teacher pay and bringing more jobs to the district.
William Wampler is anti-choice, opposes clean energy initiatives, and is against commonsense gun violence prevention solutions. He is silent on other issues including raising the minimum wage, health care access, and fair redistricting reform.
Though we disagree with Kiser’s stance on guns and environmental issues, her support of health care access and increased teacher pay makes her the more progressive choice in this race.
