Virginia State Delegate Danica Roem (D-13th) is a lifelong resident of the Manassas part of Prince William County and is the Democratic candidate for Virginia's 30th Senate District. This district includes western Prince William County and the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park. Roem is the first woman, the first person of color, and only the second Democrat to hold this seat in Virginia's history. Glenn Youngkin recently announced a large-scale effort to address learning loss among Virginia students due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Democrats also won an additional seat on the Manassas City Council, extending their lead to 5-1, even as incumbent Republican Theresa Coates Ellis won a majority of votes Tuesday night. Schools in Manassas Park and Prince William County have increased teacher salaries so that they are no longer the lowest in Northern Virginia.

Democrat Gerry Connolly was easily re-elected to an eighth term in Congress on Tuesday, defeating Republican candidate Jim Myles in the 11th district. Whether Democrats or Republicans have won a majority in the House of Delegates, I have often reached agreements with other members regarding my legislation and I have voted many times in favor of legislative commitments to promote what, in my opinion, would help the greatest number of people and, at the same time, mitigate or prevent harm. Both Stirrup and Thomas have opposed the Digital Gateway data center development project, which, according to critics, will have an unacceptable visual and sound impact on Manassas Battlefield National Park. In order to address racial justice issues in Manassas Park and Prince William County, it is essential that we focus on initiatives that promote equity and inclusion.
This includes increasing teacher salaries so that they are no longer the lowest in Northern Virginia; providing more money for capital improvement projects that reduce class size; eliminating taxes on BPOL through state grants for economic development; filling office vacancies; and supporting initiatives that promote equity and inclusion. Additionally, we must ensure that all citizens are able to participate fully in our democracy by providing access to voting rights and fair representation. Finally, we must work together to oppose any projects that could potentially harm our environment or our national parks.
