Democrat Cheryl Turpin is the incumbent in HD-85. In 2019 she is running for State Senate.

Alex has worked on many local, state-wide, and national campaigns and managed diverse teams that empowered voters. He is a Virginia Beach native, who attended the Va Beach public school system.

Currently, Hs serves as a legislative aide for the VA of Delegates where he helped craft groundbreaking legislation such as the nation-wide Ashanti Alert, which notifies the public of critically missing adults, Medicaid expansion, affordable housing expansion, and providing our students with a safe learning environment.

 Issues 

Alex will fight for:

➔ Healthcare +

"The General Assembly must continue to protect every Virginian's access to affordable healthcare."

➔ Education +

"We must strengthen our public education system by providing teachers and parents with adequate resources to help our children succeed."

➔ Environment/Energy +

"No one in Virginia should ever have to worry if their air is safe to breathe or if their water is clean to drink. Richmond must hold polluters accountable for their actions and we must act immediately to ensure a clean and sustainable environment."

➔ Criminal Justice Reform +

"We must do more as a Commonwealth to make sure that our criminal justice system is equitable and serves justice fairly to every citizen of Virginia.

Alex is also a proponent of establishing a process for the restoration of voting rights for those have served their time and repaid their debt to society."
