RICHMOND, VA – Today, Montgomery County Sheriff Hank Partin announced that he is endorsing Delegate Wren Williams for re-election in the newly-drawn Virginia House District 47. Sheriff Partin has played a pivotal role in Virginia politics as one of the sheriffs who stood up against the Democrat-led gun-grabs during the Ralph Northam administration. Partin has been a strong voice raising awareness about the challenges facing law enforcement officers, the reasons behind rising crime, and the consequences of misconduct on the Parole Board.
“With Democrats threatening our 2nd Amendment rights, passing felon-first policies, and obstructing law enforcement officers from doing their jobs, we need representatives in Richmond who will fight for us,” said Partin. “Wren Williams has voted consistently to uphold our 2nd Amendment rights. He has worked tirelessly alongside Attorney General Jason Miyares to carry over a dozen bills to support law enforcement officers and repair our justice system. Of the candidates in this race, no one will fight harder than Wren Williams for our sheriffs, our deputies, and our state troopers. I am proud to offer Williams my full endorsement.”
The following statement can be attributed to Del. Wren Williams: “I am honored to accept the endorsement of Sheriff Hank Partin. Hank has been instrumental in advocating for our rights, our law enforcement officers, and our justice system. Our police officers have the most dangerous job in America. These men and women in uniform are heroes who put their lives on the line every day to keep our neighborhoods safe. I will always have their back and fight for them in Richmond.”
Wren Williams is the sitting delegate representing Virginia’s 9th House District, serving on the Committees on Public Safety, Privileges and Elections, and Courts of Justice. Since redistricting, Williams is running for re-election in Virginia’s newly-drawn 47th House District. Outside of politics, Wren lives with his wife, Britt, and son, Rhett, in Stuart, VA. Wren and Britt own and operate Schneider & Williams Law Firm.
