Karen Mallard

VA-2 (D)
Current office holder: Scott Taylor (R)
The nomination of Betsy Devos to head the Department of Education was the catalyst for Karen to run for Congress. She believes the programs that have promoted the American dream are in jeopardy and she wants to fight to protect them. The Trump/Taylor/DeVos agenda will decimate America’s public education system and wreak havoc on American families unless we act now and take back control of Congress.
How does Karen align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Karen supports raising the minimum wage because low minimum wages not only hurt low income workers and force taxpayers to subsidize large corporations, they hold down wages for the middle class as well. Karen also believes that public education must continue to be supported so we can prepare all students with 21st century skills. We must also ensure that all educators have the resources and tools they need to get the job done.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: This candidate’s stance on this issue area is currently unknown.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Karen is passionate about the Affordable Care Act since it has brought health care to millions of Americans saving thousands of lives. Karen will fight hard to protect the ACA while working to push the country towards a system providing universal coverage. She believes Veterans must continue to have access to quality and timely health care.
