Taxes and Spending
We must teach kids how to think, not what to think, and ensure public schools still have Honors and Gifted and Talented programs, while giving struggling kids the help they need to succeed -- and ensure all children are safe at school.
Crime and Law Enforcement
In 2022, in Fairfax County there were 936 crimes against person cases, compared to 1,187 as of Feb. 15, 2023 -- and property crimes (like theft, breakins) were up by 925 cases in just one year!
In addition, there are some 180 open positions for police officers for the County Police. Across Virginia, and much of the nation, departments in urban areas cannot find officers. Why?
It's because politicians "defanged" the police and prosecutors with so-called "Criminal Justice Reform" laws to appease extremist activists. These so-called "reforms" only make it easier for some to live a life of crime vs. being productive citizens.
Instead, Ken wants to create a pilot program to place at-risk students in apprenticeship and personality development programs and get them out of crime infested impoverished communities. We also need to boost funding for Community Police Partnerships and give the police the tools they need to do their jobs.
