House of Delegates - 68th District

















MANOLI LOUPASSI, REPUBLICAN
1. Why should residents of your district elect you?
I have diligently served the citizens of the 68th District for the last four years. I have supported policies that have encouraged economic growth and opposed proposals, such as unnecessary tax increases, that I believe are anathema to it.

2. What will be your top focus if elected?
To aid, in as much as the government has the ability, to improve the economic situation in our state. We have done better than most because we have relatively speaking, a low tax environment for individuals and businesses and our regulatory environment has been less burdensome. Additionally, our right to work laws have been viewed favorably by business and make us attractive.

3. What is the most critical issue 1) facing your district? 2) facing the state as a whole? How do you propose to address these? Jobs, employment, the economy; see above.

4. How will you involve citizens in matters of government? I intend to send out a questionnaire to my citizens prior to the General Assembly session, to get their input on various issues.

5. What’s your favorite way to spend the weekend? With my wife and children.

6. What personal or professional clubs or organizations are you a member of? Board of the Richmond Holocaust Museum (2005-present); Board Member of Elk Hill Farm (2007-present); American Hellenic Educational and Philanthropic Association; Sunday School Teacher – St. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral (1994-Present; Richmond Bar Association; Richmond Criminal Bar Association; National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys; Virginia State Bar- Real Property Section; Richmond Apartment Manager’s Association; Virginia Apartment Manager’s Association; Mid-Atlantic Affordable Apartment Housing Management Association.
