Editor: I am pleased to express my support for and full endorsement of Tia Walbridge to represent the 33rd District in Richmond.
As a Town Council member in Purcellville, I understand the concerns of Purcellville and western Loudoun citizens and I believe Ms. Walbridge fully understands those issues and will work tirelessly to support our region.
Walbridge is a successful farmer and small businesswoman with deep connections to our community; she will be a strong partner for us in Richmond as we work to create a vibrant local economy that generates more and better job opportunities for all our citizens. Tia is a dynamic advocate for maintaining the excellence of our public schools, for ensuring that all Virginians have access to affordable health care, and for preserving our beautiful rural home and environment.
Walbridge owns and manages a sheep farm in Round Hill and runs a small business remodeling and renting out affordable homes in Winchester. Her two daughters attend local public schools, and Walbridge is a troop leader for their Girl Scout troop. Her husband is a disabled veteran who continues to serve his country at the Department of Defense.
Tia Walbridge is one of two Democrats seeking to challenge incumbent Republican David LaRock for the 33rd District seat. Primary elections for governor, lieutenant governor, the House of Delegates, and local offices will be held Tuesday, June 13. The general election is in November.
Chris Bledsoe, Purcellville
