Former State Delegate J. Randall Minchew announced today he will seek a new term in his old seat representing Virginia’s 10th House of Delegates District in Richmond.
Minchew, who served six year in the House of Delegates, said “there’s a lot of work that still needs to be done” in Richmond.
“I’d like to think during my six years down there I was one of the more effective members of the House of Delegates in securing transportation funding, making sure that Loudoun gets its fair share of road money, and ensuring that we had good judges elected that would come in without controversy,” Minchew said. He pointed to his work on a landmark solar energy bill and the legislation that created the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority.
An announcement video posted to his Facebook page highlights the scandals around Governor Ralph Northam, Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax and Attorney General Mark Herring. His announcement says “Virginians deserve better than the national embarrassment on display this week,” and promises to work for less congestion, more jobs, and “world-class education.”
“In the business community, stable, boring, predictable government with no major scandals and red flag issues in our newspapers is a good day,” he said.
Minchew said he secured the Republican nomination Thursday. He is the managing shareholder of land use law firm Walsh, Colucci, Lubely & Walsh’s Loudoun office in downtown Leesburg. He served three consecutive terms in the House of Delegates from 2012 to 2018. He was defeated in the 2017 election by Del. Wendy W. Gooditis (D-10).
