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.
