Melissa Dart for Delegate

For eight years, Virginia’s 56th district -covering Henrico, Louisa, Goochland and Spotsylvania counties- has gone uncontested by Democrats.

Melissa Dart has decided it’s time for change, it’s time for new voices to be heard in the 56th. On June 13th, Melissa won the democratic primary with your support, and as she heads into the general to battle her Republican opponent for victory on November 7th, she needs your support more than ever. Melissa can't do it alone; united we can take back our 56.

Passionate about healthcare, with a Master’s in Science and Health administration from VCU and a career of working in healthcare administration, Melissa is focused on quality and affordable healthcare for all. With her experience and knowledge, Virginians can trust that Melissa will fight to make sure they receive the care they deserve. Melissa believes in the expansion of Medicaid and protecting the rights of women and their families to make their own choices regarding their health.

The mother of three young boys, Melissa is deeply and personally committed to ensuring the excellence of public education within the district so that all children have access to opportunity and positive growth. As a member of the Henrico County Special Education Advisory Committee, Melissa advocates not only for her son Leo, but for the 6,000 other children in Henrico County affected by special needs.

Daily threats encroach on public education funding, and Melissa wants to work in the House of Delegates to create a state-level firewall to protect special needs students throughout the commonwealth.

At a time when our state needs unity more than ever before, please join Melissa in building a stronger and more inclusive commonwealth- we can bring change to the 56th, but we can’t do it without your continued support. Your generous contribution, small or large, will go towards making a real and lasting impact to the lives of the people within this district.

Together, we can take back the 56th.

Endless gratitude for your support!
