YOUR ADVOCATE ON CITY COUNCIL
Linwood Branch is past president and founding board member of the Virginia Beach Police Foundation, a law enforcement support group that provides scholarships and K-9 vests, while building and maintaining the Virginia Beach Law Enforcement Officers Memorial at the Boardwalk at 35th Street. Linwood’s commitment to our police and firefighters will always be a top priority.
Tidal and storm flooding continue to disrupt our lives, our businesses and our local economy. As a Councilman, Linwood will continue working to reduce residential, business and street flooding, while being a careful steward of our 2021 flood referendum funds.
OPEN SPACE & LIVE OAK PROTECTION
As a liaison to the City’s Open Space Advisory Committee, Linwood is committed to protecting open spaces and majestic Live Oak trees that make living here so special. He understands that preserving our beautiful open spaces and official city trees is key to our quality of life.
In Linwood’s words, “Virginia Beach is ready to take off!” His enthusiasm comes from a massive new entertainment project that will completely revitalize the heart of the Resort Area, and millions in Tourism Improvement Funds that are solving some of the Oceanfront’s biggest age-old challenges.
Our neighborhoods are the heart and soul of our City. During The campaign, Linwood has walked every street in District 6, knocking on doors to hear directly from voters and homeowners about what they want in their community, and what they want from their city.
JOBS & ECONOMIC GROWTH
Virginia Beach has the opportunity to set the stage for our economic future now. Overseas data cables and offshore wind present great local job opportunities and our resort is poised to be the most successful it has ever been. I will continue to lead in these areas to bring more jobs and economic activity to our city.
INFLATION & LOW TAXES
There may not be much a City Council can do to control skyrocketing prices, but it can take the sting out of our wallets by keeping taxes low. That’s why Linwood is committed to continuing Virginia Beach’s standing as having among the lowest taxes in all of Hampton Roads.
Linwood has always been a strong proponent of teachers and public education, and he’ll make sure our schools stay fully accredited, fully funded and the region’s best.
