RVAR Endorses McNamara for VA 8th House District

RVAR's Board of Directors has endorsed Joe McNamara for Virginia’s 8th House District race. The 8th House District includes Craig County, part of Montgomery County, part of Roanoke County and the City of Salem. This is a special election to fill the seat vacated by Greg Habeeb.  

The candidates were asked the same questions about the top issues facing the district, the role of economic development and tourism, ideas to promote the region, the expansion of broadband, transportation infrastructure and funding, and how best to use tax revenue from the Internet tax. Virginia REALTOR®’s RPAC Trustees will make a $1,000 contribution to McNamara’s campaign.  The special election will take place on Tuesday, November 6th.

Franklin County and Roanoke County have been recognized as nationwide tech leaders for communities with a population of less than 150,000. Each placed in the top 10 of the Annual Digital Counties Survey.

 Outside Magazine featured Roanoke as one of "America's Smartest Towns", with a focus on the growth of craft breweries in the area.

 
CALL FOR ACTION -- Renew the National Flood Insurance Program
 

NAR has issued a Call for Action to encourage Congress to reauthorize the extension of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which is scheduled to expire (again!) on July 31, 2018. Without reauthorization, NFIP cannot issue or renew flood insurance policies, including areas around the Roanoke region. 

We have seen and experienced the devastation of flooding in our area recently. This is an important issue for our area that will affect many sellers, buyers and property owners if the NFIP is not reauthorized.

Click here to take action now! Tell Congress to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program before it expires on July 31st. Please respond to this NAR Call For Action now!
