Court Rosen

Court Rosen is Roanoke City’s Vice Mayor. He was elected to city council in 2008. Rosen is most known for leading the “Eat for Education” campaign. Along with his colleagues on city council he lobbied and won support for a two-cent increase in the meals tax for a two-year period to aid the financial struggling city schools. His term ends in 2016.

Rosen had his signs out early declaring his intention to run for Onzlee Ware’s seat. He has not scheduled a formal announcement yet but issued this statement:

“I have enjoyed and continue to enjoy my work on Roanoke City Council. As localities continue to face more mandates with less dollars from Richmond, our next Delegate must understand local government operations and finance and the many implications of decisions made at the state level on localities. Our next Delegate should be someone who understands the needs and interests of citizens and businesses from across the entire 11th District. And the next Delegate should be someone who can work across party lines to pass policies that are in the best interests of Roanoke and the entire region. My experience, commitment and accomplishments qualify me to fill this critical position and I look forward to continuing to serve the citizens of Roanoke,” said Rosen.
