I'm David Bulova and I represent the 37th District - the heart of Fairfax - in the Virginia House of Delegates.
As a life-long resident of Fairfax, I know how hard we have worked to build a vibrant and caring community. We need common-sense leadership in the General Assembly to continue to build our quality of life and to invest in our future. We also need leadership that will work with, and not against, our county and city governments to solve our common challenges.
I believe strongly in the value of public service, responsibility, honesty, hard work, and fairness. I also believe in listening. Each of us brings an important perspective and I value your input. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas.
I hope that you will explore my website and check back for updates and special events. Together, we can make the 37th District an even better place to live, work, and raise our families! Feel free to contact me with your feedback on any issue.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I have always been proud to have graduated from James W. Robinson Secondary. Today, exactly 50 years ago, Sergeant Robinson died in Vietnam after "unsurpassed" heroism -- single handedly destroying a machine gun position and saving the lives of multiple GIs, all while being shot four times. He was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Today, I remember and thank you Sergeant Robinson. Click here to learn more about this true hero.
On Tuesday, March 8th, the General Assembly approved my House Bill 407, which will prohibit converting I-66 from HOV-2 to HOV-3 prior to 2020. The original plan for I-66 inside the Beltway was to convert to HOV-3 for the purpose of tolling. While VDOT backed-off of this plan, HB407 will ensure that future administrations cannot reverse this decision. Unlike I-95/395, the infrastructure does not exist along I-66 to support the higher HOV designation.
Thanks to the over 825 individuals who completed my 2016 Constituent Survey. Each year, the General Assembly acts on literally hundreds of bills that have the potential to affect our community. By taking the time to complete the survey, you provide me with critical information as I consider how to best represent the people I am elected to serve. Click here for a summary of the survey results.
I am pleased that the Governor announced earlier this week that VDOT will widen I-66 inside the Beltway from the Dulles Connector to Ballston as part of any tolling plan. This is great news. Many constituents have continued to express concerns to me about the plans for I-66 inside the Beltway, and particularly that those paying tolls should see a direct benefit.
