The Free Lance-Star: Republican Laquan Austion announces House of Delegates bid
Republican Laquan Austion has decided to throw his hat into the ring in the race for the 2nd District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates, which includes Prince William and Stafford counties.
Austion announced his candidacy on Monday, and said he hopes to bring a new voice to Richmond.
One of Austion’s key priorities will be easing traffic and commute times for families. He said long commute times can stand in the way of parents making it home in time to tuck their children into bed or attend their sporting events.
Austion aims to create a business climate that enables people to rise out of poverty through free-market opportunities. He believes this can be done by creating incentives and eliminating “handouts,” which he said keep people impoverished.
