About Conservative Leader & Delegate Jason Miyares

Delegate Jason Miyares is an example of President Ronald Reagan’s "Shining City upon a Hill." His story begins with his mother, Miriam Maria Miyares, who fled communist Cuba in 1965 with the clothes on her back and no idea from where her next meal would come. She legally immigrated to the United States and instilled in her three sons a passionate love of the freedom and democracy of America. Miyares grew up in Virginia Beach, attending local public schools and growing up in a middle-class household that emphasized the values of hard work, love of country, and service above self.

 

Above all, his mother’s story of losing everything she owned to the horrors of socialism taught Jason Miyares firsthand the truth of Ronald Reagan’s maxim that “freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction… it must be fought for, protected and handed on…..”

 

That truth animates Jason Miyares’ service as a prosecutor, leader and Delegate.​

A New Generation of Leadership

In November of 2015, he won the open seat to the 82nd District for the House of Delegates by the widest margin in the district's history while becoming the first Cuban-American ever elected to the Virginia General Assembly. Jason Miyares has brought commonsense conservative leadership and accountability to Richmond while fighting for fiscal discipline and government transparency.

In the House of Delegates, Miyares has been a conservative voice in Richmond, standing up against the Defund the Police movement and proudly standing with our law enforcement community.  He serves on the General Laws, Courts of Justice and Transportation Committees, where he has worked to build smarter, more accountable government working on transparency and regulatory reform.  Recognized as a “Champion of Free Enterprise” by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, Delegate Miyares has consistently opposed higher taxes and regulations that make it hard for small business owners to expand and thrive. In 2019, Miyares advanced landmark legislation that makes it easier for small business owners to provide childcare services as a benefit to their employees. A former prosecutor (Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney) for the City of Virginia Beach, Miyares worked to keep our most violent criminals off our streets and our families safe.
