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 am pleased to announce that my annual Town Hall meeting will be held on Saturday, February 10th from 9-11 a.m. at Fairfax City Hall. Joining me will be Senator Chap Petersen. We will start with a quick presentation about issues being debated in the General Assembly and will then open up the meeting for discussion. It is a point of pride that we always have so many wonderful constituents who come out to express their thoughts and priorities. Hope to see you there!
The 2018 General Assembly session began on January 10th. Over the next two months, we will debate a wide range of issues and adopt a new budget that will set spending priorities for the next two years. Please take a few moments to share your thoughts on some of these issues by filling out my 2018 Constituent Survey. Last year I received over 1,200 responses. I hope to have even more responses this year. Your input is invaluable as I decide how to vote.
In response to the start of tolling on I-66 inside the beltway, I have joined 15 of my General Assembly colleagues (and future colleagues) in signing a letter to Secretary of Transportation Aubrey Layne expressing deep concern about the project and asking for suspension of tolling until the issues can be resolved. The fundamental problem is tolling existing infrastructure as opposed to new lanes. While there are plans to widen I-66 from the Dulles Connector to Ballston (
I am happy to continue a tradition started in 2006 by holding a series of informal office hours to take place from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m on the following Saturdays. Constituents are invited to talk about issues of interest and to ask questions about legislation affecting our community. The format is casual and no appointment is needed.
I hope you are enjoying the summer! I am pleased to present my annual Report from Richmond. The report is a selection of new laws passed during the 2017 General Assembly session that are likely to impact the daily lives of people in our community. Most of these went into effect on July 1st.
