Virginia Green announces State Rep campaign

Jeff Staples, a mechanic from Chesapeake, has announced a Green campaign for Virginia House of Delegates District 81.

From HamptonRoads.com:

A Green Party candidate from Chesapeake announced he’ll challenge Del. Barry Knight, R-Virginia Beach, in the 81st House District. Knight won without a challenger in 2013.

Candidate Jeff Staples wrote Thursday on his Facebook page: “Tired of not having choices, I have stepped forward to offer an alternative. I want to offer a voice for the working folks of this district.”

Staples is a mechanic who lives in the Hickory area of Chesapeake. He graduated from Lynchburg College and is a member of the Sierra Club.

The district includes part of Chesapeake and part of Virginia Beach. All 140 legislative seats in the General Assembly are up for election in November.
