According to the Roanoke City Registrar Kimble Reynolds, Jr. has been certified as an Independent candidate for the 11th district House of Delegates special election to be held on January 7.

Reynolds is an attorney from Martinsville with Kimble Reynolds and Associates. He served on Martinsville’s city council until December of 2012. According to Reynolds ran for the 16th district House of Delegates as a Democrat in 2003 losing to Robert Hurt (R) 38% to 62%. He lives in the Plantation Road area of Northwest City. He served as regional director for 5th District U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello in 2009.

On the Martinsville Kimble Reynolds and Associate’s website it says that:

As a council member, Reynolds has been involved in organizations such as the Virginia First Cities coalition, Virginia Municipal League and the National League of Cities. That has helped him generate ideas to improve the city, based on ideas that have worked elsewhere, and find out about funding opportunities for city projects, he said. Government is like a machine, Reynolds said, in that it has a lot of moving parts, all of which must turn in the same direction to accomplish things. He admitted that as a councilman, he has been surprised at how complex some issues can be and how long it often takes to resolve them.”

The firm’s mission again from the website says: “The importance of having a government that is respected as being fair and legitimate. We provide assistance in creating the legal and policy framework necessary to build institutions that allow for citizen participation. We recognize that fairness, legitimacy and respect are not earned through a boiler plate approach. Although our objective is to find solutions that promote common goals, our approach is tailored to the unique characteristics of our client. Our efforts center on creating an outcome that promotes individual liberty, transparency, and provides a respected voice to citizens regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, familial origin, political affiliation, personal opinion, or economic status.”

He enters the 11th district race with Republican Sheriff Octavia Johnson and Democrat Sam Rasoul.

He is a good guy. I knew him when I was the director of the Reynolds Homestead in Patrick County. He has been active in the Virginia Tech Alumni Association. This is shaping into an interesting race. I hope we'll at least get a big turn out for the election!
