The Shenandoah Valley-Herald

RICHMOND — Delegate C. Todd Gilbert (R-Mount Jackson) has been elected by his fellow Republicans in the Virginia House of Delegates to be the next House Majority Leader.
Delegate M. Kirkland “Kirk” Cox (R-Colonial Heights), the current Majority Leader, was elected to become the next Speaker in the wake of the announced retirement of Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford).

Delegate Gilbert represents the 15th House District in the Virginia House of Delegates, which includes all of Shenandoah and Page and portions of Rockingham and Warren counties. He was first elected in 2005.

Delegate Gilbert stated, “I am humbled by the trust placed in me by the members of our House majority. I pledged to them that I would continue to fight for our shared values and vision for the people of Virginia. Ever since I first ran for public office, I have steadfastly maintained my belief that limited government, lower taxes, personal and economic freedom and individual responsibility are the core values that best unleash human potential and prosperity. I will never waver from this belief, and it will guide our Republican caucus as we shape public policy. Our Republican majority has achieved much in our efforts to make Virginia a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family. We will continue to prove to the people of Virginia that our work and vision represents the best way forward for our Commonwealth.”
