A successful businessman and technologist, Joe May has spent more than 30 years building a business in Northern Virginia that supports over 250 jobs. Joe May knows the issues and challenges facing Virginian businesses and has the right experience and approach to grow jobs, increase wages and expand economic development to create more prosperity for Northern Virginia families.
As an independent-minded leader in Richmond, May’s efforts built bipartisan support to prioritize investment in our region and state and to adopt policies to enhance job growth and increase wages.
In the General Assembly, May worked alongside now-Attorney General Mark Herring to secure commercial space launches at Wallops Island – bringing millions in investment and economic development to Virginia.
May has been named a “Champion of Free Enterprise” by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce for his efforts to support jobs and small businesses.
As our senator, May will work to reform excessive regulations that hamper growth and investment and seek to streamline and consolidate state and local economic development efforts to maximize results and attract jobs. May will fight to protect Virginia’s common-sense, pro-business climate and oppose extreme proposals from radical politicians seeking to appease an out-of-touch far-left base.
