Supporting Veterans and Military Families

"Missy knows that those who have risked their lives for our country have earned, not only our respect, but the benefits they were promised. While national politicians clamor to say they care about our veterans, all too often veterans and military families are treated like pawns in some political game. Our veterans need elected officials who will honor our promises to them, their earned benefits should never be used as political leverage. Missy understands the challenges military families face and will be a champion for veterans and military families in Congress."

Stronger, Safer Communities

"As a mother, veteran, and former small business owner, she will focus on strengthening our local economy, veterans services, and public schools. She’s not interested in political fights; Missy is focused on substantial solutions for Coastal Virginians. And, as a private citizen, she’s already achieved results. She created a “locked doors” petition that produced a concrete plan to make our public schools safer. And now, schools across Virginia Beach have locked doors with cameras and buzzers. She also serves on the bipartisan, multi-state Chesapeake Bay Commission, where the focus is on legislation to improve outcomes for the people who live along the Chesapeake Bay. Missy will continue to work for a stronger, safer, and more resilient Coastal Virginia."

Protecting the Right to Choose

"You have an innate right to control your own body. You should not lose that right depending on where you live, who controls your state legislature, or where your military orders station you and your family. Extreme politicians are determined to take away our personal freedoms, like the right to make decisions about our bodies and reproductive health care. Missy will steadfastly advocate for your personal freedom."

Revitalizing Hampton Road's Economy

"As a former small business owner, Missy saw in real time how chaos and fighting in Washington can impact businesses in Hampton Roads. She knows that our local economy needs reliability and stability in Washington’s policies. Local businesses cannot thrive when politicians threaten government shutdowns, or play politics with military promotions and funding for veterans services. Missy will always advocate for policies that focus on economic growth in Coastal Virginia."
