Mavis Taintor

Mavis is running in HD-33, where Tia Walbridge ran in 2017.

"Mavis is running for Delegate to be a voice for healthcare for all, fair wages for teachers, and infrastructural improvements that will bring Virginia's 33rd District the same prosperity enjoyed by the rest of a very wealthy state. Throughout her career, Mavis has fought for ALL Americans, whether as a Head Start teacher, as a breaker of glass ceilings in the male-dominated world of business in the 1960s and 70s, or as an activist. She will be a fighter for progressive values and policies that Virginians can count on."

Mavis, on the issues:

➔ Healthcare +

  • Healthcare for ALL Virginians. Healthcare is a human right, and I will support efforts toward universal coverage in Virginia.
  • Increased funding for mental health services.
  • A multifaceted approach to the opioid crisis that both discourages the needless prescribing of opioids without punishing the chronic-pain patients who need them.
  • Increase funding for women's health services...
  • Eliminating costly and wasteful Medicaid work requirements"
  • ➔ Education +

  • Increased investment in our classrooms, our teachers, and their support staff. To empower the next generation to succeed, we must make sure our children receive the highest quality education the Commonwealth can deliver.
  • Ensuring teachers are included in discussions of school policy. Our teachers know what our children need best — we must endeavor to treat them like the professionals they are and listen.
  • ➔ Human Rights +

    "I believe the most foundational responsibility of any elected official is to fairly and honestly represent the best interests of all her constituents.

    I support:

  • The passage of the Equal Rights Amendment to enshrine women's rights in the US Constitution.
  • Prohibiting on-the-job discrimination against LGBTQ+ Virginians."
  • ➔ VA Workers & Economy +

    "Our district features enormous income inequality, yet too often our Commonwealth seems to focus on making the rich richer. I stand with Virginia's workers and will fight for your rights and opportunities in Richmond."
