Keeping Up with My Campaign
You can't get in your car without seeing construction here in Northern Virginia. It may inconvenience your drive or even wake you up well before your alarm clock. Why is it good for us and what should we look out for? As I have been campaigning, I have been speaking with builders, planners, and business people in our community to get some various viewpoints on the prevalence of construction in our area. I would like to take a moment to share them with you, as well as hear your perspective.
Northern Virginia's population is growing at a seemingly exponential rate, and our community is constantly playing catch up to keep up with demand. The buildings you see going up around us are a sign of progress and prosperity. Creating new retail space allows for new businesses to gain a foothold in the market without forcing out some of the older, more established businesses.
As always, there are two sides to every coin. More people means more traffic. Traffic in Northern Virginia is already a nightmare, and it seems as though there are daily traffic jams wherever we drive. Our area is home to one of the most congested roadway systems in America. Some of the issues I will work to address include increasing commuter options like rail and easing traffic congestion.
As the strain of the COVID-19 pandemic lessens, there will be more and more people on the roads. It is critical that we get out in front of this traffic issue and not wait until it's already a problem.
