Delegate Chis Hurst (D)

12th District

You may know me as the former evening anchor of WDBJ7 Roanoke. Through that job, I traveled the region, talking to, and learning from you. I heard about and reported on the issues that impact your pocketbooks and your family. Now I want to do more. I believe the people of Southwest Virginia need a strong voice in Richmond. Someone who will advocate for our education system, expand access to healthcare, increase economic opportunity, and protect our natural resources.
