I've had the privilege of knowing Randy Forbes for many years – both as a friend, mentor, and a fellow public servant. I admire his passion for public service and his commitment to being "the people's representative." As home to one of the country's most diverse population regions, I know Hampton Roads and the 2nd Congressional District would be well-represented by my friend Congressman Forbes.
Randy's top priorities are protecting national security and serving those who have served this nation. As Chairman of the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee and a Senior Member on the House Armed Services Committee, we need Randy to help protect our region's job and industrial base, as well as to ensure we have a capable and ready military to protect our nation now and in the future.
Randy is also a leading supporter of the U.S.-Philippine alliance and the welfare of Filipino-Americans here in the United States and in Hampton Roads, where we have one of the largest concentrations of Filipino-Americans residing here. In recognition of their dedicated service to this country, Randy recently cosponsored a bill to recognize the Filipino Veterans of World War II, and he supports keeping our commitments to all who have served our country. Randy has also worked with me in developing stronger trade between the U.S. and the Philippines in imports and exports and he is working to promote our Port of Virginia. Randy has introduced the Visa Integrity and Security Act that will bring back integrity in the immigration process and help bring properly screened immigrants to the United States to be reunited with their loved ones. I'm also pleased that a majority of our most distinguished Filipino-American leaders and organizations have endorsed Randy Forbes.
There's a reason why: he's the leader our region needs. His experience, seniority, and vision for Hampton Roads' future makes him the best equipped to serve our community and lead us forward -- I urge you to join me in supporting his election on June 14th.
Yours in service,
Delegate Ron Villanueva
21st District, Virginia House of Delegates and
Chairman of the House Transportation Committee
