Jobs & Economic Development

Virginia used to be #1 in the nation for business and job growth. Now Virginia continues to fall in and out of the top 10 and has the 30th worst tax policies in the nation. 

 

Glenn is an entrepreneur and has the history and experience to eliminate the tax and regulatory burdens that are holding back economic opportunities for Virginians. His initiatives in these areas have earned him multiple awards and honors from the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, including Freshman Legislator of the Year (2014), Small Business Advocate Award (2015), Champion of Free Enterprise Award (2016), and Advancement of Innovation and Technology (2017). 

Life & Family

Glenn supports policies that strengthen our families and keep our communities safe. As a pro-life conservative, Glenn believes that we should further streamline the adoption process so women can be more confident that their babies will not end up lost, growing up inside a governmental system, but rather in a loving home, allowing not only their child to achieve their dreams, but also allowing loving couples to reach theirs.

Glenn also recognizes that the family is the bedrock of any functioning society and will support policies that strengthen our families and keep our communities safe.

Education

Glenn is extremely passionate about the education of our children. He has been heavily involved in numerous initiatives including SOL reforms to reduce the number of standardized tests in our schools and additional opportunities for our students with disabilities. Additionally, Glenn has focused on growing opportunities for students to graduate high school with a high tech skill set in the trades, allowing them to enter high wage careers right out of high school, without the additional burden of college debt.

 

Glenn has also seen the benefits of charter schools first hand serving on the Governing Board of Green Run Collegiate, a charter school in Virginia Beach he helped create.

Innovative Solutions

Glenn has identified bold, innovative solutions to many of the problems facing our Commonwealth. Whether tax, education, or job-creation, Glenn believes Virginia should work to replace outdated policies with new innovative policies, taking advantage of recent technology to create better efficiencies and cut the cost of government.

 

Glenn, at his own expense, has visited MIT to identify 21st-Century coal research, traveled to Estonia to better understand 21st-Century robotics manufacturing opportunities, and worked to identify new technology to bring high-speed bandwidth to homes in rural Virginia.

2nd Amendment

Throughout high school, Glenn shot 3-position smallbore rifle competitively for his school's NJROTC unit and as part of a rifle team out of Langley Air Force Base.  Today Glenn enjoys various shooting sports including skeet, sporting clays, and long range precision shooting.

 

Glenn believes that Virginia should protect the rights secured by the Second Amendment while ensuring that the necessary laws exist to keep firearms out of the hands of those that should not possess them.
