Glen Sturtevant Supports Constitutional Amendment for Nonpartisan Redistricting

 

CHESTERFIELD- Glen Sturtevant, the Republican nominee for Virginia Senate in the 10th District, has signed the OneVirginia2021 pledge in support of redistricting reform, which states, "I support reforming our redistricting process by amending the Virginia Constitution to establish a redistricting process that is done by an impartial, independent commission based on non-partisan, objective criteria." Sturtevant supports nonpartisan redistricting to make districts more representative and fair.

Speaking about nonpartisan redistricting, Sturtevant said, "We have got to take politics out of redistricting so that voters get fair representation and legislative districts keep communities intact, rather than dividing them for partisan political gain. I am proud to sign the OneVirginia2021 pledge."

Earlier this summer, at a forum hosted by Voices for Virginia's Children, Glen voiced his concern over gerrymandered districts, especially the 10th Senate District, saying “This is an extraordinarily gerrymandered Senate district and it’s wrong. We have to fix it.” Increasing government accountability and transparency is one of Sturtevant's top priorities in the State Senate. Fixing gerrymandered districts, like the 10th District, is a component of his plan to increase accountability, access, and to provide fair representation for voters in the Commonwealth.

GOP turns to Glen Sturtevant to run for critical Senate seat

Chesterfield Observer
By Jim McConnell
STAFF WRITER

 

Less than three years after he was elected to the Richmond School Board, Glen Sturtevant is making a run for the General Assembly. 

Sturtevant, a 32-year-old attorney and father of three, is the Republican Party nominee for Virginia Senate in the 10th District.  As such, he's also a key figure in the GOP's effort to maintain control of the state legislature and prevent Gov. Terry McAuliffe from expanding Medicaid to thousands of uninsured Virginians.

That's a big responsibility for a man of his youth, but Sturtevant insisted that he's up for the challenge. 

"I think a lot of people want to see a new generation of leaders step forward," he said during an interview last week.
