Welcome to my website! I proudly represent the 95th District in the Virginia House of Delegates (parts of Newport News and parts of Hampton). I am honored to serve the residents and help make the Peninsula an even better place to live, learn, work, play, and raise a family. Join the team today and together, we can continue to get the changes we need and deserve!
The 2022 General Assembly Legislative Session began on Wednesday, January 12, 2022 at noon and adjourned Sine Die on Saturday, March 12, 2022. During Session, members of the Virginia House of Delegates met during the week and you can watch our committee meetings and Floor sessions here. Can't remember how a bill becomes a law, no problem! Get your refresher here to follow along the process.

During the Reconvened Session, we voted on the Governor's amendments and vetoes, including vetoes of bills that could have actually helped a lot of people. We were also called back for a Special Session because we did not finish our work like we usually do. During Special Session, we voted on conference reports (compromise bills), including the budget and the Governor's detrimental amendments to the compromise budget. We are scheduled to go back on September 7th.

A note about our Constituent Services: There have been some frustrations expressed with our requirement that you let us know if you are a resident of the 95th District. While I understand that concerns and issues often do not have the same borders as districts, my primary commitment is to the people I serve and then I will do as much as I can for others. Feel free to reach out to your own Delegate if you do not live in the 95th District. Here's a link to find out which Delegate has the honor of serving you: Who's My Legislator
Gov. Glenn Youngkin is facing calls to withdraw his recent appointee to the Historic Resources Board due to her recent comments defending the Confederacy and criticizing former President Abraham Lincoln’s role in the Civil War. Youngkin announced last week he had appointed Ann McLean, a historian and the founder of a Christian school in Richmond, to serve on the Board of Historic Resources. Shortly after, she came under fire for previous remarks defending Confederate statues on a Richmond radio show. On Monday, she returned to the radio show and seemingly doubled down.
“I think the appropriate reaction here is disgust,” Del. Cia Price, a Newport News Democrat and member of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, said Tuesday.

Domestic workers are excluded from American labor laws by design. Congress left out domestic workers from the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 to appease white Southern lawmakers who wanted to maintain free and cheap labor, provided primarily by women of color. To this day, this country does not guarantee a minimum wage or overtime pay to these essential workers. To keep these Jim Crow laws on the books is to support racist policies and reinforce workplace oppression.
This work is personal. We come from families of care workers who did not have the protections they deserved. That’s why we’re pushing back against that painful and too-often ignored history. Last year, Care in Action worked with domestic workers and sponsors Del. Cia Price, Del. Wendy Gooditis, and state Sen. Jennifer McClellan to pass a Virginia Domestic Workers Bill of Rights. This historic legislation extends common workplace rights to house cleaners, health care aides and nannies. Virginia is the first state in the South to codify protections for these workers and finally turn the page on this ugly chapter from our past.
While passage of these laws is essential and long overdue, we can’t help but wonder: How long will it take for the rest of the country to catch up? Progress doesn’t have to be a painful, drawn-out process. Swift federal action can protect all workers across the nation.
