Jobs & the Economy
As the former owner of Stony Creek Pharmacy in Stony Creek, VA, Otto has nearly 20 years of experience in running a business and creating local jobs. In Richmond, Otto has been a tireless advocate for small businesses and will continue to support legislation that helps create more jobs and opportunity in the Commonwealth.
During his first term, Otto voted to increase funding for schools and voted to increase teacher pay by 10%. He also stood with parents by supporting legislation that requires parents to be notified when students are assigned explicit material and requires students to be assigned alternate material if parents register objections.
As a practicing pharmacist for over thirty years, Otto knows firsthand that we need to improve healthcare services in our region. Access to quality care is limited, providers lack necessary resources, prescription drug costs are too high, and it is nearly impossible to navigate the health insurance maze for patients and providers alike.
