I hope the information you find here will help you, not only when you need assistance, but also help you better understand Virginia's government. You will find links to important government sites on the Links of Interest page.
The issues most common to our area are: Budget/Taxes, Job Creation, Business Regulation, Healthcare, Public School/College, Environmental/Uranium Mining, Renewable Energy, Road and Transportation/Gas Tax, Seniors, Veterans, Gun Rights, and Right to Life. If you share these concerns or have others, I would love to hear from you. It is important to me to know how the issues affect you so that I may represent you well. You can reach me at Sen.Ruff@verizon.net, 434-374-5129 or P. O. Box 332, Clarksville, VA 23927.
Your views are important to me, but they must mesh with my view of the role of government in the lives of those of us in Southern Virginia. Please visit the Legislation page. There you will also find links to bills I have sponsored in past sessions.
Thank you for visiting our website. It is my honor and privilege to represent you; one I take very seriously. I look forward to the opportunity to continue to serve the people of Virginia, and I look forward to hearing from you!
