Welcome to my website!  I was elected to represent the 95th District in the Virginia House of Delegates (parts of Newport News and parts of Hampton).  I am honored to serve the citizens and help make the Peninsula an even better place to live, learn, work, play, and raise a family.

The 2019 General Assembly Legislative Session began at noon on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.  Odd numbered years are "short sessions" and we met for 46 calendar days (one more day than usual).  During Session, all 100 members of the Virginia House of Delegates met every Monday-Friday at noon. You can watch each session here.

Our committee meetings were held at various times during the week. Find our committee video here. Can't remember how a bill becomes a law, no problem! Get your refresher here.

We adjourned sine die on February 24, 2019. And then our next step in the legislative process was Reconvened (Veto) Session on April 3, 2019. There the Senators and Delegates reacted to the Governor's vetoes and amendments to bills that had been passed.

Next up in the process is the laws becoming effective on July 1st.

Local State Delegate’s car broken into, but she’s hoping to turn it into a positive

Now, Price is hoping to turn her experience into a positive and is encouraging people to donate clothes and shoes. "Those of us who may have a little extra - we get busy in our day-to-day lives and the things that we have in the back of our closets can be a huge impact to people," she said.
Organizers of Tori's Closet say shoes are very popular items. People can come by on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. -1 p.m. to collect the clothing for free. All they need to submit is their names.
People wishing to donate can stop by the center weekdays from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
"I was imagining what these people might look like if they're going off to their new job or they might be going off to a special event and they needed these shoes," she said.

Local Delegate asking others to donate clothes to charity after her donations were stolen

While she was in Richmond for a conference this weekend, someone smashed her window and broke into her car.
"I checked, and they stole food that I had for a youth group. They also stole some shoes that I had gotten together for a donation," she said.
Delegate Price said she didn't want that to stop her from still donating to help those who go to Tori's Closet, so, she asked others to help donate clothes.
"Once I posted it on Facebook, I had an outpouring of love from all over Hampton Roads, all over Virginia. Some of my college friends from Atlanta and New York wanted to see how they could help," said Delegate Price.
As the donations come in, she said she's reminded that there are many who are in need, and she hopes the kindness of others can make a difference.

Reflections on a General Assembly shadowed by gubernatorial scandal

From the Shad Plank News Blog: What then, one audience member asked, can Virginians do about the blow the state suffered from the scandal?
And here, Del. Marcia “Cia” Price, D-Newport News, spoke up, following up on an earlier comment that Virginia needed to do some real work on reconciliation — work, she said, that means recognizing racial and economic inequities and committing to redressing them.
“We have to say: ‘we’re not afraid to talk about these things, because we are Virginia,’” she said.

Without outreach funding, it will be harder to count Virginia’s children, immigrants and senior citizens in 2020

Del. Cia Price, D-Newport News, was one of the most vocal supporters of state funding for census outreach. She spoke about the importance of counting every resident of Virginia several times on the House of Delegates floor and cited “non-return” rates of 2010 census surveys in Hampton Roads, which includes many of the state’s largest cities.
Non-return rates track the number of people who don’t respond to the initial census survey mailed to them. The census follows up with those people in other ways to make sure they are included in the final count, so it shows how many people needed outreach for census participation, Price said on Twitter.
According to census data, Norfolk had a 29 percent non-return rate, meaning roughly 68,000 people there didn’t respond to the first survey mailed to them for the 2010 census. Newport News, where Price’s father presides as mayor, had a 26 percent non-return rate.
At the bottom of return rates was Highland County, where 47 percent of residents didn’t return a survey. Bland and King and Queen counties had the state’s highest return rates at 85 and 86 percent, respectively.
“The @uscensusbureau is WAY behind on staffing and prep for the upcoming census,” Price tweeted a few weeks before the General Assembly reconvened to consider Northam’s vetos and budget rewrites. “We have to look out for ourselves. VA can do that by funding outreach to make sure there is a complete count in our Commonwealth.”
