Virginia senator and Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine endorsed Angela Lynn as candidate for Delegate of Virginia’s 25th District.
“In the 25th district House of Delegates race, the choice for Virginians is clear- which is why I’m proud to endorse Angela Lynn. A teacher and community leader, Angela believes every voice deserves to be heard, no matter their political party, background, or income. People trust Angela because she shows up, listens to their concerns, and is committed to truly representing them in Richmond. She is a principled leader who is speaking out to defend working families, our natural environment, and the voices of the marginalized and under-represented,” Senator Kaine said.
During his tenure as Mayor of Richmond, Lieutenant Governor, Governor, Senator, and candidate for Vice President, Tim Kaine has worked on behalf of the needs of rural Virginians. “He has been a champion on protecting our environment, ensuring our children receive the best education possible and strengthening our economy,” Lynn said. Angela and Tim are proud to fight together to expand Medicaid to this largely rural district, strengthen public schools, and clean up Virginia’s air and water.
Charlottesville, VA–Wednesday, September 13th the Senior Statesmen of Virginia held a forum between Steve Landes and Angela Lynn. The candidates had a chance to answer questions about the Charlottesville-Albemarle County revenue-sharing agreement, voter ID laws, public education and gerrymandering. On voter ID laws, both Landes and Bell argued that requiring voters to show photo ID at the polls is a great way of preventing voter fraud. Lynn argued that the issue today is not voter fraud but getting people out to vote.
“A vote is the one thing that makes us equal,” she said. “It crosses over socio-economic lines, it knows no boundaries with race or gender or any of those things that make us feel that we aren’t as powerful as another person. But if we’re not all capable of being able to do it, then that would be stripping us of a fundamental right and a pillar of our democracy.”
In her closing remarks Lynn added “I really am the candidate for the 21st century. I don’t believe we need to go back; I think we need to go forward.”

Monday, August 7th the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) held the first of three public hearings on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. Hundreds of concerned citizens, including Angela Lynn, were in attendance to listen to what the DEQ and members of the community had to say about the proposed pipeline, but there were no elected officials to be seen. Speaking with News Leader, Angela said she believes the DEQ pipeline approval process has “cut corners” and has been “fast-tracked,” pointing to the combination of the environmental review of sediment control with the review of storm water management as an example of that.

The State Assembly’s Republicans’ refusal to expand Medicaid coverage across Virginia is fiscally and morally irresponsible, and displays a callous disregard for Virginia’s most vulnerable. Expanding Medicaid would insure around 400,000 Virginians who are currently without healthcare, often at times of greatest need.
