SERVING VIRGINIA'S 85TH DISTRICT

Born and raised in Virginia Beach, Alex is proud to serve the community he grew up in – the 85th District – as a Delegate in the Virginia General Assembly. He’s fighting to create tangible solutions for our community and make sure all of your voices are heard in government.

It’s my honor and privilege to serve Virginia Beach in the House of Delegates. I’m proud of the progress we’ve made in the General Assembly on issues like criminal justice reform, flood mitigation, coastal resiliency, and making high-quality, affordable healthcare accessible for more Virginians. We’ve worked around-the-clock in Special Session to address the public health and economic issues we’re facing as a result of COVID-19. In just a few weeks, we’ll reconvene for another session and I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions before we head back to Richmond.
