Recruiting and Retaining the Best Teachers
To recruit and retain the very best public school teachers, Jimmie Massie supports merit pay and bonuses for veteran educators who meet measurable performance benchmarks.
Jimmie supports innovative and proven school choice programs such as charter schools, homeschools, and education improvement scholarships that empower parents, not government bureaucrats.
Lower Taxes and Spending
Jimmie Massie knows that over the years state spending has increased. Our government clearly has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. As Delegate, Jimmie Massie will be a voice for fiscal discipline, will oppose tax increases, and will propose ways to reduce wasteful spending.
Jimmie believes that Henrico families deserve to keep more of the money they earn and supports reducing marginal tax rates for each and every taxpayer.
Jimmie understands how important it is for our families to live in safe, friendly neighborhoods. As Delegate, he will work to pass tough anti-crime laws that keep violent criminals where they belong - behind bars.
As a Delegate, Jimmie Massie will be a reliable vote for traditional values and pro-family legislation. He was a leader in the movement to pass the marriage amendment to the Virginia Constitution that guarantees Virginia will only recognize marriage as between one man and one woman.
