PUBLIC SAFETY

Virginia Beach is consistently one of the safest large cities in America.  We are blessed with an exceptional police force led by a fantastic police chief, and the Council has stepped up with increased pay and incentives to attract and retain the very best.  We also invest in the latest technology to make police response more rapid and make our neighborhoods and businesses as safe as possible.

 

FLOODING

Virginia Beach has made a major commitment to fund flood mitigation projects with passage of the 2021 referendum.  My commitment to you is to make sure the funds are spent on the projects that were identified in the referendum and that the projects are completed on budget with the greatest transparency possible.

 

CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

Virginia Beach is a community of civic organizations and volunteerism, including the many boards and commissions appointed by City Council.  The talent and institutional knowledge throughout these networks is massive, but COVID took a lot of their interconnectivity away.  We must rebuild this.  We have to return to a community that discusses issues face to face and have a city government that works with citizens person-to-person.  That’s the Virginia Beach that will move us into the future.

 

OPEN SPACE AND environment

Through Linwood's leadership, Virginia Beach is funding the Open Space Program and Linwood serves as a liaison to the Open Space Advisory Committee.  Preserving open space is key to enhancing the quality of life of Virginia Beach residents, and Linwood is a champion in that mission.

 

JOBS AND 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.
