On Friday, Nov. 2,  Michael Webert, our delegate representing the 18th district of Virginia, came to discuss issues in Rappahannock County Elementary School’s seventh-grade civics class taught by Ms. Natalie Hathaway. Webert is a Republican who was elected to office in November of 2011.

He is the manager of a 3,500-acre farm and owns a small business. He has won many awards for his actions and achievements. His ideas for helping our district include supporting our farmers and agricultural areas. Farming is so important to our area because it provides many of its jobs. He believes that there should be lowered taxes and regulations, so that citizens can become successful.  

He also wants to keep the small towns and rural communities thriving and help them stay the way that they are, while allowing progress for the good of our area. He wishes to strengthen us as a small business area. He would like to give these businesses tax breaks and incentives, so that they will actually want to grow and stay in the area. Michael Webert has great ideas to help our district, and is someone who really cares about it.
