Key Issues

Campaign Finance

Campbell believes that money negatively affects the election process and creates other priorities for elected officials, so he is not accepting campaign donations [1, 2, 3].


Campbell wants to increase revenue by installing solar panels and geothermal heating and cooling systems in all of Fairfax County’s public buildings [1. 3].


Campbell wants to encourage the use of trains to decrease the amount of traffic on highways by signs on the area’s highways which would display wait times for the Virginia Railway Express. He would also like to build additional bike rental stations and a new light rail system [1, 3].
