I always start anything about Jackson Miller by saying that even though I don't agree with him, he is one of the more personable and accessible people in the General Assembly. When kids in his district make Honor Roll, they get a letter from him. Jimmy did too. At one point, he supported mandated health insurance for autistic children. I assume it must have been party or donation or something, because he voted against the insurance mandate last year. He now touts his support of small business instead of families of autism, which is sad, because he knows several of us. Mercifully the bill passed... even though it didn't cover Jimmy, it is something for children of the ages between 2-6.
I am not in his district anymore, which is sort of mixed blessing. He is competent. He is direct for the most part. When he is being political, he will tell you why he is. That's a whole lot better than many politicians. But I wish Jackson's heart could be as good in Richmond as I know it is up here in Manassas. That's my biggest gripe about him. Maybe someday he will be part of expanding the coverage for children with autism. Maybe someday he will see Jimmy again and be moved to help him.
