She understands the necessity of having a strong advocate for parents and students in Richmond. I am proud of the work that we have accomplished together, and I look forward to continuing our work in Richmond defending our community’s students and parents.”

“I am proud to endorse my friend and colleague, Ryan Harter, for the House of Delegates,” said Debbie Bailey. “Over the past 3 years serving our community together on the School Board, we faced many challenges and triumphs. Ryan has always been a voice of reason and demonstrated leadership for our division during the toughest of times. We need fresh ideas and bold leadership in our legislature to continue improving education for all of Virginia’s children. As a Veteran, school teacher, school board member, and business owner, there is no question his experience is what we need right now.”
