His commitment to expanding economic opportunity, making healthcare affordable and accessible for all, expanding broadband and equipping our teachers and public school systems so our region’s children can become world-class citizens make him the right choice for the 6th district.”

Cobb and Jeffrey join other high-profile progressives endorsing Volosin.

Born and raised in Roanoke, he received his undergraduate degree from Brown University and a Master’s Degree from Georgetown University. His career has been working to improve the lives of other people and build a stronger economy. He supports higher wages, improved health care, improved transportation and building better communities...I believe Peter will well represent the hard working families in the 6th Congressional District.”

“It’s truly an honor to have these exemplary community leaders in my corner,” Candidate Peter Volosin said.
