  • “I stand firmly against off-shore drilling. I think that off-shore drilling is detrimental the coast of Virginia and the east coast. I spoke recently to Representative Carbajal, a first term representative in California. The first piece of legislation he introduced was the California Clean Water Act. What does that do? It prevents drilling off the coast of California. Our current Representative Scott Taylor signed his name to a letter saying: he doesn’t support offshore drilling. He was silent on it for a while back in 2010 when he agreed that he supported it because he thought that we could have something like the Gulf Coast states have, where, they have an agreement where they get 37.5% of the revenue from the oil leases. But in the end he changed his mind and signed his name to a letter. If I was elected to Congress, one of the first things that I would do is work across state lines and across party lines to prevent off-shore drilling off our coast.” (Karen Mallard for Congress YouTube Channel, “Eastern Shore Democratic Forum,” Clip begins 44:18, Uploaded 5/3/18)

 

  • “I think that one issue we haven’t touched on very much tonight is the impact of sea level rise and the current flooding in our region. So, when I look at this, it’s something that was an occasional nuisance to something has now become a persistent problem and it poses an extreme threat to our infrastructure in the region, and because of the amount military forces that operate here, the largest naval station in the world, massive facilities on the eastern shore, we have to start planning for how we are going to deal with sea level rise in the future. And it is a real national security issue, because of that reason. This isn’t something we can fix in a year, or even a decade, but we need to start planning today on how we can determine the engineering solutions and the resources that are going to be necessary to combat this in the future.” (Lowkell YouTube Channel, “VA-02 Dems Forum, Sponsored by Hampton Dem Committee,” Clip begins 1:09:21, Uploaded 3/14/18)

 

  • “And, I stand strongly against voucher systems. I stand strongly against any type of charter schools that remove funding from our public education, cause the public education that we provide across America is the foundation of our future generations. I also think we need to invest further in early childhood education. We need to make sure children are given the best tools that they need going into the classroom and going into kindergarten, so they can be successful workers throughout their lives. And I would stand for protecting the funds we have for public education now, and be against any rolling back of system via these types of methods.” (Karen Mallard for Congress YouTube Channel, “Eastern Shore Democratic Forum,” Clip begins 31:26, Uploaded 5/3/18)
  • “I think that in 2016, you’ll remember, that due to redistricting in the neighboring Third and Fourth districts, there was a primary, it was only a Republican primary, and in that primary was Scott Taylor and Randy Forbes. So, I went to the polls, as I do, to vote, and of my options on that day, I felt that Scott Taylor was the more moderate person and should he end up on the ballot in the general election, I thought that you know, he was a better choice.” (Lowkell YouTube Channel, “VA-02 Dems Forum, Sponsored by Hampton Dem Committee,” Clip begins 1:00:00, Uploaded 3/14/18)
  • “Scott Taylor is a fellow veteran, and so I thought to myself, I’m a veteran and I understand that veterans’ ideas are to get the mission done. And I had also met Scott Taylor personally, I had spoken to him and I thought that he was, you know, he really painted himself as reasonable, moderate person. Of course, I didn’t always agree with him on all of his positions on things, but I thought given the choices on the ballot in 2016 he was the better choice to represent the 2nd District. And obviously, sitting where I do today, I think that was a mistake and he hasn’t represented us well. I’m very disappointed he’s voted along lines with President Trump about 98% of the time. I don’t like many of the choices he’s made. So I will not vote for him again.” (Lowkell YouTube Channel, “VA-02 Dems Forum, Sponsored by Hampton Dem Committee,” Clip begins 1:00:50, Uploaded 3/14/18)
  • “I moved on to the general election and during that election only one candidate, not the Democrat, had a public facing message. There was absolutely no information available from the Democratic side, from the candidate that was running in 2016.” (Lowkell YouTube Channel, “VA-02 Dems Forum, Sponsored by Hampton Dem Committee,” Clip begins 1:00:32, Uploaded 3/14/18)
  • KAREN MALLARD [ON DCCC PRIMARY INTEEFERENCE]: “Whenever you do a political ad on TV or radio, you have to certify that the money is not coming from foreign entities. So, we need to expand those regulations to the internet. Especially to Facebook. And prohibit the interference, that will prevent the interference, from foreign entities in our elections. Maybe we’ll just leave the interference to the DCCC.” (Karen Mallard for Congress YouTube Channel, “Eastern Shore Democratic Forum,” Clip begins 40:13, Uploaded 5/3/18)

 

  • “I do not support in principle the recent tax plan that was implemented. I think it’s always a good move where we can put more money in the pockets of our working and middle-class families, but I do not support the fact that those cuts were not permanent. I do not think that at a time when corporations are receiving record profits, that we should further line the pockets of corporations today on the backs of our hard-working families tomorrow. The $1.5 trillion additional dollars in debt that was incurred through the tax plan, that’s something that my daughter is gonna’ have to pay in her future.” (Rob McCausland YouTube Channel, “Karen Mallard-Elaine Luria Forum, VB Democratic Cmte.,” Clip begins 45:04, Uploaded 6/9/18)

 

  • “I mentioned in a previous response that there are plans that would roll back the $1.5 trillion additional dollars in debt in additional and recoup additional funds, a $2 trillion recoupment and create more jobs through an infrastructure plan. So that’s the type of legislation I’d like to see. We need to roll back these tax cuts that we’ve made on wealthy corporations because they’re burdening our children and our next generation.” (Rob McCausland YouTube Channel, “Karen Mallard-Elaine Luria Forum, VB Democratic Cmte.,” Clip begins 45:40, Uploaded 6/9/18)
  • “The recent Democratic economic and infrastructure plan that’s been introduced in the US Senate which seeks to bring back 15 million jobs and recover $2 trillion in tax revenue, reversing some of the things in the recent tax bill are key things I would seek, because those are good legislation and that’s excellent legislation for this region because it looks at infrastructure, it looks at ports, it looks at widening and deepening the channel, it looks at airports, which we’re gonna’ a have a problem with, at our Norfolk airport in the coming years, and it focuses greatly on resiliency which is a huge issue for our area with sea level rise and the current flooding.” (Lowkell YouTube Channel, “VA-02 Dems Forum, Sponsored by Hampton Dem Committee,” Clip begins 36:43, Uploaded 3/14/18)
