All candidates for Virginia House of Delegates District 29 complete Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey

Both candidates running in the Nov. 7 general election for Virginia House of Delegates District 29 — Marty Martinez (D) and Jonathan Mark Rogers (R) — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.

Here are the candidates’ responses to the question: What are the main points you want voters to remember about your goals for your time in office?


  • “All Virginians deserve clean, safe, and affordable housing regardless of who they are or where they come from.
  • We must build the healthcare system the American people have always deserved, reducing prescription drug prices, premiums, and out-of-pocket costs and reins in overall health care expenses.
  • Our public schools are bedrock community institutions, and yet our educators are underpaid, our classrooms are overstuffed, and our school buildings have been neglected. We can and must do better for our children, our educators, and our Commonwealth.”


  • “Education is the cornerstone of all great societies. We must support all school initiatives and increase teacher pay across the board.
  • Law Enforcement provides a safe and secure environment for all communities. We must fully fund our bravest and finest citizens.
  • Jobs are key! We must provide an inviting environment for future businesses.”
