ISSUES

Economy:

Wendell knows the key to a thriving Virginia is pro-business, common sense legislation that creates an economic climate that is ideal for new jobs and industry. With this in mind, Virginia must avoid new burdensome, unnecessary economic and environmental regulation in order to make sure the Commonwealth is a place companies from around the world want to do business.

Wendell also believes in a strong workforce. For 21 years, Wendell has worked with the Commonwealth of Virginia, setting up apprenticeships in areas of various trade jobs as well as made connections between job-seekers and industry found within Virginia in order to grow Virginia’s workforce from the ground up.

Taxes:

Wendell knows that you can put the money you have earned to better use than the government.  He will vote against measures that will increase the tax burden on citizens in the 23rd District, and will introduce legislation to reduce unnecessary regulation and taxes on businesses and families.

Agriculture:

Agriculture plays a key role throughout Virginia and in our community. Wendell understands the importance of keeping farms across The Commonwealth thriving. New environmental standards, taxes, and other government oversight have the ability to severely hinder the way of life farmers have followed for generations. With this in mind, Wendell opposes legislation such as Estate Taxes and Virginia’s “Green New Deal”

Life and Family:

Wendell Walker is a pro-life leader in our community. For many years, he has worked and supported the right to life, from conception to natural death, on the local, state and national level. Wendell supports many pro-life and pro-family organizations and believes that institutions such as Planned Parenthood do not deserve your tax dollars.

2nd Amendment:

Wendell understands the importance of owning firearms. Recently, bills proposed in the General Assembly and supported by the governor are written to limit your ability to purchase and own firearms, and defend yourself in Virginia. In the face of such legislation, Wendell will fight for your 2nd Amendment rights.

Public Safety:

Wendell supports our law enforcement, our military, and our first responders. He knows the importance of our heroes having the crucial resources they need to do their jobs. Wendell also understands the potential consequences that come with sanctuary cities and will fight to keep them out of Virginia. There’s no place in Virginia for sanctuary cities.
