Virginia's Public Safety Champion, Brian Moran
There are 100 legislators in Virginia's House of Delegates, thousands of bills passing through each year, and hundreds of needy non-profits jockeying for even 30 seconds of any one legislator's time.

You quickly learn which legislators aren't your friends and which legislators just give you lip service. Pandering for your vote and endorsement, some will tell you one thing to your face but then turn around and vote contrarily.

But then there is that legislator that cares deeply about your concerns, has "walked the walk" on the issues you labor tirelessly over. You hold tight to that legislator as they guide you through the wiles of the General Assembly and eventually a lot a good work gets accomplished.

Repeatedly for over a decade, non-profits involved in public safety and victims relief have found that champion in Delegate Brian Moran.

As a former prosecutor for over 7 years, Brian’s legacy was one of a tough, no-nonsense, hard-nosed prosecutor. Then as a legislator for over 12 years, he coauthored some of the nation’s toughest drunk driving and domestic violence laws and fought elder abuse with tougher penalties. Having witnessed first-hand the often ignored hardships that victims of crime and their families face, Brian pushed a law through the legislature to create work leave for victims of crime. Brian has always been especially impacted by crimes against children. That is why Brian championed Alicia’s Law, which provides additional state police officers more training and new technologies to protect our children from online sexual predators.

The laundry list of legislation that Brian has championed is too long. The accolades in appreciation for his hard work and dedication to this cause are too great. To mention his being named the Virginia Sheriffs Association’s Legislator of the Year, being twice awarded the Victims and Witnesses of Crime Legislative Award, receiving the Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Legislator of the Year award, and collecting the endorsement of dozens of Virginia's Commonwealth Attorneys and law enforcement officials only scratches the surface of appreciation and gratitude so many of these vitally important non-profits harbor for Brian Moran.

No better example of the passion Brian Moran pours into literally fighting for Virginians exists than the below video (*BC editors, please allow). He fought hard to get Alicia's Law through, but that wasn't even half the battle. He then had to convince Virginia's House of No to put their money where their mouths were and fund it. That one helluva a speech ultimately won it for him and for the Virginia's children.

It is that passion, experience and dedication to fighting for Virginians that we need in our next Governor. Flash-in-the-pan enthusiasm and zeal are great, but the issues facing Virginia are far too great to be left with the inexperienced.
