                Delaney Dispatch               

June 4, 2019 

Dear Neighbor,

As you know, Virginia Beach experienced a tragic shooting last week. The effects of this tragedy is reverberating across the Commonwealth and have hit hard here in Northern Virginia. My heart goes out to those who lost their lives, those recovering in the hospitals and the friends, family, and communities affected by this event.

If you are interested in helping the City of Virginia Beach and those who have been touched by this mass shooting please click here

I will continue to advocate for common sense solutions and fight to end gun violence in the Commonwealth.

We are #VBStrong

Best,
