Anthony Flaccavento for Congress

Abingdon, VA


Democratic Congressional candidate in Virginia's 9th Congressional District.

In Southwest Virginia, we know all too well what happens when economic decisions are made by and for Wall Street; when farmers, small business owners and working folks are neglected by both political parties; when great teachers and smart students have to hold fundraisers just to get the basics; when coal mining communities are left for dead; when the playing field for ordinary people is steeper than a Wise County hillside.

I'm running to help level the playing field for the 9th District of Virginia; to put people and communities first. To restore our land and rebuild our livelihoods. To build a strong, diverse and resilient economy from the bottom up. That’s the work I’ve been doing for more than 30 years, as a farmer and an entrepreneur, here in Southwest Virginia and many other parts of our region. I want to take that experience to Washington DC as your representative.

Issues: Economy, Healthcare, Equal Opportunity for Women and Girls, Strengthening Public Education, Guns, Money in Politics, Opioid Epidemic.
