Prior to winning elected office, incumbent Democratic Delegate Jeff Bourne was appointed by Attorney General Mark Herring to serve as the Deputy Attorney General for transportation, real estate, and construction litigation for the Commonwealth of Virginia. Delegate Bourne is committed to education, environmental protection, criminal justice reform, and housing equality. He is proud to have led the bipartisan passage of bills like HB 1600, which limited long-term school suspensions to 45 days, and HB 1922, which provides stronger safeguards against landlords who mishandle eviction proceedings.
Delegate Bourne is running against independent Pete Wells. Wells supports the legalization of marijuana for recreational and medical use in Virginia. He also wants to end capital punishment and aims to eliminate punitive solitary confinement in state prisons.
Jeff Bourne is the more progressive choice in this race.
