Hank Davis: A Strong Voice for Southside Virginia

In the 19th Senate District, a special election is brewing that will have a big impact on the future of Southside Virginia. The people of Danville, Franklin County, Pittsylvania County, and Campbell have a chance to select a forceful advocate for the region who will fight to create jobs, preserve the health and environment of the region from the effects of uranium mining, and most importantly... a leader who will fight to improve the educational opportunities available to the next generation.

Hank Davis has lived in Southside for more than thirty years, owning his own small law practice in the area, and raising three children who all graduated from the local school system. For the past eleven years, Hank has served on the Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors and now serves as Chairman. We have a golden opportunity to take back the seat formerly held by Republican Robert Hurt, but to do so we need your help.

Will you commit to making phone calls before the special election coming up on January 11th? You can sign up to make calls from home using the virtual phone bank tool sponsored by the Democratic Party of Virginia. More importantly, will you consider making a $5, $25, or $50 donation to support Hank in the final weeks before Election Day?

This is our chance to help make sure Southside Virginia has a bright future. Please show your support for Hank Davis today!

Transportation Reform Key for Economic Growth

China and India spend 9% and 5%, respectively, of their GDP on transportation infrastructure, while the United States only spend .93%; this is clearly a problem. At one point in time, the United States’ transportation system was the envy of the World and now the US transportation system is on a free-fall both with quality and spending.

As our roads continue to crumble, many of our country’s leaders neglect their responsibilities regarding transportation reform. Sadly, the economic impact of their delays has become more and more evident.
