Wonderful News For Portsmouth – 80th House District

Jennifer Lee 80th District Candidate

After years of never seeing a delegate come to your door, seek out your opinion and carry your message and concerns to Richmond, you have the opportunity to change that. A breath of fresh air has come to Portsmouth courtesy of Hawaii. Jennifer Lee has accepted the nomination to become your next Delegate to the Virginia House of Representatives. After graduating from High School, she attended Old Dominion University and fell in love with Virginia and Portsmouth in particular.

She understands the issues that face the 80th district and her resolve and independent spirit were forged as a military wife. A US Marine’s wife to be specific. Jennifer raised three daughters and a son. For the military families, you know exactly what that means. Times are not always easy and the nature of the job of a Marine Master Sergeant keeps him deployed for extended periods.

Ms. Lee managed to obtain her master’s certification in Information Technology for Project Management and she has been employed in the Health Care industry for nearly 30 years. She is currently the Senior Information Systems Manager for Virginia Oncology and Associates and has been with them since 1999. She is a member of the Information Technology Advisory Committee for USOncology, and is also a member of the ECPI Information Technology Advisory Board. Jennifer understands the positive impact that technology can have on our local economy.

It has been some time since I had looked around Portsmouth. I saw first hand the urban layout in which Ms. Lee had expressed so much pride during the podcast interview below. Businesses and residences exist side by side. Ms. Lee’s description of the diversity of people in one of the few completely urban districts reflected the pride she has come to have for her home. Portsmouth’s diversity isn’t just about race. It is about the mixture of Seniors and youth, military, civilian contractors and just ordinary, down to earth people. Each with their own special needs and requirement.

Ms. Lee said that as she walks door to door and talks to her 80th district neighbors, many of them tell her that no one has bothered to contact them, especially in person, as far back as they can recall. And Jennifer hears them all. Crime is a concern, with gang graffiti and even violent crime on the rise, many feel that their elected representatives have failed to hear them. Education is a big concern for Ms. Lee. She has a lot of ideas to keep kids in school and interested. And she believes strongly that the Community College system is a vastly under used resource for continuing education to ensure that our young people can compete in this tough business climate.

Ms. Lee is in favor of State Health Care Initiatives that will be cost effective and give citizens real options and choices to take care of themselves.

Ms. Lee smiles when she talks about the churches she visits every Sunday. She tries to visit two churches each Sunday and says she will visit ALL of them twice before November. She proudly says there are about three churches on every block, which she believes is what makes this community so wonderful. The 80th District, including bits of Chesapeake and Norfolk, all have one big thing in common. That Church is the backbone of the community.

I say it is high time the people of Portsmouth had someone to work for them and restore the pride and fight the growing crime. That person is Jennifer Lee.

    Thank you for being concerned about the changes going on in mainstream news media.

    In my opinion, it’s up to ourselves as individuals to keep each other accountable and pursue the facts and get towards the truth. But there are systematic vulnerabilities within the media, internet, and interpersonal that make it controversial.

    Like you, I read my local paper every day and interact with the journalists. And I invented Storifynews. precisely because I was concerned like you.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
