Delegate Rey supports the Governor’s vetoes and voted to sustain them.
SB 340/HB 980, Election- Voting Rights- Ex Felons bills gives felons the right to vote immediately upon release from prison, even though they have not fully served their time. “I support Governor Hogan’s veto of this bill. Current law achieves the proper balance between the repayment of obligations to society for felony convictions and the restoration of the right to vote. If they break the law why should felons have a voice in making the law? ” notes Rey. “We tend to lose sight of the victims of crimes that are also affected by our laws.”
“The voting session once again demonstrates that Democrats in the House of Delegates support the criminal over the law abiding citizen,” states Rey.
Citizens are invited to meet Delegate Rey at her first Town Hall meeting on Saturday, February 6th, 10 AM at the Bay District Volunteer Fire Department, 46900 S Shangri-La Dr, Lexington Park.
