Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of detecting breast cancer early. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms, and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved. Click here for more information.

DO YOU KNOW A YOUNG PERSON INTERESTED IN BECOMING A PART OF THE SENATE AND HOUSE PAGE PROGRAM?

The Senate Page Leadership Program is structured similar to a college preparatory program with components centered on developing future leaders. Students who receive admission to the program carry on the tradition of page service in the legislature while fulfilling requirements in a professional development track comprised of speakers, site visits and classroom-like instruction.

The mission of the program is to facilitate a structured environment in which young Virginians embrace responsibility and accountability, develop professional characteristics through strict standards of conduct and engage in the legislative process through work, observation and discussion. For additional information, or if you have any questions, please call toll-free at 1(888) 892-6948 or 1(804) 698-7410 or e-mail: pageinfo@senate.virginia.gov

I recently had the pleasure of bringing in greetings from the House 
Thank you to all Veterans and candidate for the 2nd Congressional District, Elaine Luria, for a wonderful round-table discussion on veteran issues. 
On Wednesday, October 3rd I attended the U.S. Senate Town Hall at Hampton University featuring Tim Kaine and Corey Stewart alongside my colleagues Ross Muglar and Delegate Jay Jones. 
Kirk Cox, the Speaker of the House of Delegates, considered a session to address the redistricting  that found 11 House Districts responsible for racial gerrymandering. The house would consider and vote on HB 7003. Governor Northam announced his objective to veto the map should it be passed by the General Assembly. We are scheduled to return for special session on October 21st and I will be sure to keep all of my constituents updated as we move forward.
