In the Neighborhood
My favorite thing to do is knock doors and talk to voters. I love hearing about what matters most to members of our community.
Bus Service to Lackey Free Clinic
It was an absolute joy to speak at WATA's Ribbon Cutting for Route 11. This new line not only provides service to Lackey Free Clinic, but also to the Yorktown Naval Weapons Station and the James City County government complex. Bus service to Lackey is something that the late Senator Miller, Senator Mason, and I have been working tirelessly to make a reality.
I had such a fun time touring Historic Jamestowne with the Jamestown Rediscovery Project! Boy, was it a hot one. Here archaeologist Danny Schmidt told us stories about the chancel of the first church on the settlement, and who might have been buried there.

In the Heat of Summer
"What can we do to help our families with this summertime problem of supervising, entertaining and educating their children while they are out of school? As a criminal prosecutor, I have too often seen what happens to a child unattended during the summer. In my 10 years in the courtroom, I have seen hundreds of children sent to the Department of Juvenile Justice, but I have never seen a child be committed who participates in an after-school activity. That could be almost any program, whether the Boys and Girls Club, choir or basketball. Having something to do with their time and an adult who cares about them are the keys to keeping children off the streets and out of my courtroom." - Delegate Mike Mullin, Daily Press Editorial
In my editorial, I discussed the importance of after-school opportunities like STEP here in Newport News. I also had the distinct privilege of giving the keynote address at the Newport News Juvenile Drug Court graduation, and was able to speak with the Newport News Neighborhood Watch Coalition. Both as your Delegate and a prosecutor, I am always looking for ways to be involved in keeping people safe. I applaud programs and organizations like these who are helping kids get on and stay on the right track.
