"Ms. Wexton offers the most promising alternative. In addition to her stint as a prosecutor, she has worked on commitment hearings involving people who may pose risks to themselves and others, where she gained firsthand experience of the state’s mental health system. She supports common-sense background checks for gun buyers. She has taken to heart the desire of Northern Virginia voters that lawmakers break legislative logjams through compromise. That sounds like no big deal, but it has become a valuable commodity in Richmond."

Ashburn, VA: State representatives on both sides of the health care debate came face-to-face with Loudoun County residents Monday night at the Ashburn Library to discuss the inclusion of Medicaid expansion as part of the state’s budget.
A town hall meeting hosted by national conservative political group Americans for Prosperity, which opposes Medicaid expansion as proposed by the governor, was met with a strong counter message from a group that gathered for a rally just minutes before.
Leesburg, VA - The Leesburg Town Council this week weighed in on the General Assembly’s budget battle, adopting a resolution calling for the General Assembly to approve an expansion of Medicaid.
The vote was 5-2, with Councilmen Tom Dunn and Kevin Wright opposed.
State Sen. Jennifer Wexton (D-33) asked the council to take a position supporting efforts by Gov. Terry McAuliffe and the Senate to implement a form of Medicaid expansion as part of the state budget.
Perhaps no issue deserves our respect and attention more than the one on whether to expand Medicaid in the commonwealth. There are strong ideas on both sides of an issue that impacts virtually everyone in Virginia.
Two of Loudoun County’s state representatives couldn’t sit further from one another politically but both state Sen. Jennifer Wexton (D-33) and Del. Dave LaRock (R-33) found some common ground as they reflected on their first General Assembly session.
Wexton and LaRock, two of 17 freshmen state lawmakers this year, said seeing the lawmaking process up close—as a total of 2,888 bills moved through subcommittees, committees and then, for many, to the House and Senate floors for votes—was the highlight of the 60-day session.
