One more day of this heat wave...we used this cooler morning to give our late spring lambs their CD-T boosters. You can guess who decided to make a video clip of it! While we breed Cotswolds (a long wool breed), demand for market lambs is rising—I’ve spoken with several local restaurants and butchers who regularly feature lamb and would happily buy locally if we had a larger industry. Predators (coyotes, dogs) have been one of the main issues for VA sheep operations. We keep a guard llama (their effectiveness was tested in multiple state Extension studies and they have out-guarded LGDs) with ours and haven’t lost any of our flock to predators *knock on wood.* ...

154 years ago, on the third Sunday of July 1865, Macedonia Baptist Church, Flint Hill, VA held its first service. Today, I was proud to be part of a grand anniversary and homecoming celebration where Reverend Chunn, who grew up in Front Royal, inspired the packed house and kept us all laughing too. Macedonia Baptist, like other congregations across our district, is a home for so many families and friends. At lunch, one longtime congregant remarked to me, “This is a great day. I just wish there were more kids around, but this is like most of Rappahannock, it’s hard to support a family here and people move away.” We have a lot to do to change that equation but a long tradition of community, faith, hard work, and ingenuity will move us forward. ...

Update: Warrenton Farmers Market is cancelled today because of the heat. I had a great visit last week with many local farms and small businesses like Cold Pantry Foods - Pizza (thanks, Carol Vogel, for a very delicious summer pizza). I also learned a lot from Tim at Living Springs Microgreens livingspringsmicrogreens.com/ —growing right here in Warrenton. ...

Dominion Energy, Virginia’s state regulated utility, has been funding the campaigns of Virginia lawmakers including my opponent Michael Webert for years.

It’s outrageous that legislators accept money from Dominion Energy when their job is oversight over the very same industry. I will not accept campaign contributions from Dominion.

That’s why I’m proud to announce Clean Virginia has endorsed my campaign!

Clean Virginia works to advance better government and clean energy by fighting monopoly utility corruption in Virginia politics. Their work ensures our democracy serves regular Virginians rather than special interests in Richmond.

It’s time for a change in our leadership. The 18th District deserves a leader not someone beholden to special interests like Dominion.

But I can’t do it alone. It’s going to take all of us to change the culture in Richmond.

Sunday I had an incredible experience at Providence Baptist Church in Orlean and was bowled over by the warm, family welcome from Rev. Simmons and his congregation. I loved celebrating your homecoming with you. Make sure you check out the beautiful doves of peace in the new stained glass windows—the result of a great community effort by this gem of a church. ...

“A new national report found that Virginia agriculture could grow by 18% if broadband technology is extended to underserved communities.” ⬅️ This! Ag/forestry is VA’s largest industry ($70 bil/year)...let’s keep growing it. Here’s a preview of the next generation right here in Fauquier at the Fauquier County 4-H Ag Expo. Let’s make sure they enter the industry with the tools (and connectivity) they need.
Check out some great showmanship especially in the senior class. Can’t wait until my cloverbud club ages up and enters the show ring.

Today, Republicans ended the special legislative session without even considering a bill, abdicating their responsibility as our elected officials. I hoped our state legislature could deliver on bipartisan legislation but Michael Webert and Virginia’s Republican leadership chose to put their own reelection concerns ahead of public safety in our Commonwealth. Time and time again, Michael Webert disregards the public safety concerns of citizens and gun owners in the 18th district. It’s time for new leadership in Richmond that puts Virginians first. ...

The Women’s Summit was full of energy, ideas, activists, and public servants today. I caught up with neighboring Delegate Wendy Gooditis, Caucus Chair Delegate Charniele Herring (we went to the same law school), Josh Cole for Delegate, the group that’s been helping register voters and canvass across our district, along with many others. Got home in time to pick wild raspberries at the farm with the little guy. ...

What a storm tonight! Hope everyone is safe after the Warrenton Town Limits fest was cut a bit short. Thanks Eric Maybach for Commissioner of the Revenue for helping our volunteer get back on her feet in the rush to evacuate. Before that storm hit, we met lots of Warrenton families and enjoyed all the slides and bbq from Sibby's Restaurant & Lounge. ...
