NEWPORT NEWS, VA – Today, Delegate Marcia Price (95th District) announced her intent to seek re-election in November 2017.  She was elected to her first term of the House of Delegates, to represent the 95th House District in 2015.  In Richmond, she fought for educational opportunities and safer neighborhoods, while supporting legislation that would make a more equitable and just Commonwealth.   In the District, she has worked hard to hear directly from constituents and make government more accessible to citizens. 

Delegate Price said, “The advances that we have made to make quality educational opportunities available to all of our youth are significant.  Progress made toward the New Virginia Economy has been tremendous as we invest in job creation and innovation.  Community policing efforts in decreasing youth crime over the summer were successful.  Honoring the value of our veterans entering the civilian workforce was a priority.  Protecting victims of domestic violence was a bipartisan effort.  Restoring the rights of thousands of Virginians to participate in the governmental process is huge.  There have been gains. But often they are tempered by the amount of work we still have yet to accomplish. For instance, we have to continue to make our neighborhoods safer. We can’t settle. We have to keep going.”

Price wants to continue the progress that has been made in her district and the Commonwealth in a second term.  “What we do and say must send authentic messages that we want everyone to have an opportunity for wholeness and wellness and that we want everyone to have the opportunity to have their voice be heard,” she said.

“The current political climate requires that we come together to fight to protect our communities, to promote equality, and to invest in our children’s success.  The current climate also requires that leaders not be afraid to speak out against legislation, initiatives, and ideas that promote hate, inequality, inequity, and injustice.  I want to continue to do just that as your Delegate for the 95th District,” Price said in closing.

Delegate Price was born and raised in Newport News, VA and looks forward to continuing to fight for the 95th District and the Commonwealth.  Election Day is November 7, 2017.  Price will seek the Democratic Party’s nomination in early 2017.
