Elizabeth Guzman

Running for House of Delegates
Virginia
Election: June 13, 2017

Elizabeth immigrated to America from Peru as a single mother looking for a better future for her daughter. She juggled three jobs just to be able to afford a one-bedroom apartment, but through hard work, perseverance, and dedication, she paid her way through college and graduate school and now works to provide vital service programs to the City of Alexandria. If she wins, she will be the first Hispanic woman elected to the Virginia house of delegates.

Elizabeth’s legislative priorities are to:

  1. Expand Medicaid in Virginia

  2. Expand early childhood education programs

  3. Creating support systems for veterans

  4. Increasing the minimum wage

  5. Protecting green space and farmland

  6. Strengthen disability insurance
