Stuart, VA— Attorney and former Patrick County GOP Chairman Wren Williams (R-Stuart) announced he will be challenging incumbent Delegate Charles Poindexter for Virginia’s 9th House of Delegates District.

The following statement can be attributed to Wren Williams (R-Stuart):

“I am running to represent the 9th district because for too long, career politicians have forgotten about our community and we continue to lose. I was born and raised in Patrick County, and in the last 20 years we’ve lost jobs, our elections have been left open to fraud and abuse, and the 9th district still lacks access to basic necessities. Liberals in Richmond have trampled on our God-given, Constitutional rights, and in the Legislature, I will bring a new energy and fresh perspective to fighting for Southwest, Southside, and our conservative values.”
