Incumbent Democratic Delegate Schuyler VanValkenberg is originally from New York. He attended college at the University of Richmond and Virginia Commonwealth University, where he obtained a master's degree in History. Delegatee VanValkenburg currently teaches at Glen Allen High School.

In his first session, Delegate VanValkenberg sponsored and passed a bill to prevent people from losing their state professional licensure due to student debt problems. Following the Parkland shootings, he was one of a few Delegates chosen to serve on a select committee for school safety. He held community input sessions and met with parent activists and school safety experts to work on a set of recommendations to the General Assembly that focused on physical infrastructure, student mental and emotional health, and school-community relations. He is fighting for more education funding, better economic development, and access to reproductive rights. Delegate VanValkenberg is a staunch supporter of the Affordable Care Act and voted to expand Medicaid in Virginia.

Republican GayDonna Vandergriff’s campaign is unclear on a number of issues surrounding reproductive rights, LGBTQ legislation, or racial equality. She believes in increased funding for public education.

Delegate VanValkenberg is the progressive choice in this race.
