Virginia Senate Update - December 2017

Message from Glen

Dear Friends,

As 2017 comes to an end, Lori and I would like to wish you a very happy New Year, filled with love, prosperity, and good health.

I would like to sincerely thank you for your support and friendship this year. I appreciate the opportunity and honor to continue to represent you in the Virginia Senate.


The 2018 General Assembly Session will begin on Wednesday, January 10. Our office has been hard at work preparing for the New Year and are in the process of finalizing the legislation I will introduce. As always, I am focused on growing our economy, supporting and strengthening our public schools, ensuring our top notch public colleges and universities remain affordable for Virginia families, and improving government accountability and transparency.

With heartfelt gratitude and excitement for the year to come, I look forward to a great 2018!
