Virginia House of Delegates District 31
Delegate Elizabeth Guzman is the first Hispanic woman ever elected to the Virginia House of Delegates, and the first AFSCME Union member ever elected. She was elected the Chair of the Freshman Caucus, the largest and most diverse group of delegates elected to the State House. Guzman is a first-generation immigrant who came looking for opportunities to achieve the American Dream. She found opportunities for her oldest daughter, Pamela, worked three jobs, and eventually earned two master’s degrees. She is a public administrator and social worker from the City of Alexandria. Delegate Guzman ran to help everyone achieve their American Dream, by making health care affordable for every Virginian, ensuring high quality public schools, and investing in roads and public transit.
Delegate Guzman has kept her promises by standing up for hardworking Virginia families on health care, transportation, and empowering women. With Elizabeth’s hard work, the House of Delegates voted to expand Medicaid to over 400,000 hard working families, including 10,000 in her own district. She brought millions of dollars to improve highways and address the I-95 bottleneck in Prince William County. Finally, she has fought hard to empower women across the Commonwealth, through promotion of the Equal Rights Amendment, and ensure women have a place at the table in health care legislation.
EveryDistrict endorsed Delegate Guzman in 2017 and we’re proud to be supporting her re-election campaign in 2019.
