For Virginia Beach Families


Too many families in the 22nd District are struggling to make ends meet. As your Senator, Aaron is laser-focused on creating new economic opportunities and building an economy that works for every family. As an At-Large member of City Council, Aaron delivered real results for hardworking families, including raising the minimum wage to $15/hour, increasing salaries for education and public safety professionals, and lowering taxes for small businesses. In the General Assembly, Aaron will:

  • Work to attract new good-paying jobs to the region
  • Invest in job training to equip people with the skills they need to secure good jobs
  • Increase funding for affordable housing and build new workforce housing
  • Lower the cost of health care, including prescription drugs


Aaron is a proud product of Virginia Beach public schools and a graduate of Virginia Tech. He also has two young children in public schools. But Aaron knows that not every child in Virginia Beach has access to the same educational opportunities and he is committed to breaking down inequities and ensuring that every child can obtain a high quality education. Senator Rouse will:

  • Fight to raise teacher salaries above the national average
  • Ensure every three and four-year-old child in need can benefit from preschool
  • Modernize school infrastructure so children can learn in safe, 21st Century classrooms
  • Expand access to job training in schools so children are prepared for good-paying jobs

Health Care

Making health care more affordable and protecting access to abortion are key priorities for Senator Rouse. In the General Assembly, he will fight tirelessly to achieve these goals. Aaron believes that hardworking families should be able to afford to access the care they need and take their prescription drugs without worrying about being able to put food on their tables. Additionally, Aaron believes that reproductive health care decisions should be made between a person and their doctor, not by politicians. Aaron will not compromise when it comes to protecting abortion rights in Virginia. In the General Assembly, Aaron will:

  • Fight to lower the cost of health care, including prescription drugs
  • Expand access to coverage so no family has to go without care
  • Fiercely protect the right to an abortion and defend against any attack on abortion rights
  • Ensure access to contraceptives for every person
