Two new Democrats take office in Henrico County!

Shannon Taylor takes her oath of office

Earlier today, I had the happy privilege of attending the investiture of two of my clients. Shannon Taylor took the oath of office as Henrico County's next Commonwealth's Attorney and Tyrone Nelson took the oath of office as the next member of Henrico's Board of Supervisors for the Varina magisterial district. Shannon is the first woman ever elected as Commonwealth's Attorney for Henrico County. Tyrone is only the second African American elected to Henrico's Board of Supervisors, and the first to be elected from the Varina district. I am very proud to have worked for and supported these two talented individuals and I celebrate the barriers they have broken down this year. I know that they will both provide exceptional service to their constituents. Congratulations to Shannon and Tyrone!
