Governor sets special election for 91st district HOD seat

RICHMOND- Governor Bob McDonnell issued the following statement today regarding the date for a special election for the purpose of electing a representative to fill the seat of Tom Gear, who resigned from the Virginia House of Delegates on December 30, 2010:

“Tom Gear ably served the people of the 91st House district for nine years and on the Hampton City Council prior to that. He has been a committed public servant, and his presence will be missed when the General Assembly convenes later this month. I wish him and his family the best.

I have called a special election to be held on March 8, 2011. The last day for filing as a candidate for this election will be Friday, January 21, 2011, at 5:00 p.m. Should the parties or prospective candidates have any questions, they should contact the Virginia State Board of Elections at 1-800-552-9745 and ask for ‘Special Election Information.’”
