VA House 72 – 2019

District Description: County of Henrico (part)
Current Delegate: Schuyler T. VanValkenburg since 2018 (D)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“VanValkenburg, a teacher, was the first Democrat to even run for this seat in 10 years when he won in 2017 with just under 53 percent of the vote. Though the district has gotten consistently bluer each year, Republicans say they see an opening for Vandergriff, who unsuccessfully ran for school board and serves on a variety of community boards. For now, the money is on VanValkenburg’s side, who had raised $205,000 at last report, nearly twice as much as Vandergriff.”

The most important thing I can do for you as your state delegate is to always remember you and your family are whom I represent. This guiding principle will ensure I always have your best interests at heart.

I have worked for decades to champion individuals and to respect the differences that make us stronger when united rather than divided. I believe we are in this together
