Elaine Luria served in the Navy as a Surface Warfare Officer and nuclear engineer for 20 years, deploying six times and at the peak of her career commanded a unit of 400 sailors. Since retiring from the Navy, Luria has started a small business in Hampton Roads. In Congress, Luria has pledged to fight back against the Trump administration’s attempts to bring offshore drilling to Virginia and work to restore the health of the Chesapeake Bay.
Elaine is committed to protecting the Chesapeake Bay, banning offshore drilling, and investing in renewable energy. As a Navy veteran and small business owner, she knows firsthand how important it is to their regional economy and military readiness to prevent offshore drilling off Virginia’s coasts. She will be a strong advocate for the environment.
