It’s a never ending campaign cycle with all of the special elections this year. Since Lynwood Lewis is moving up to the State Senate, his seat in the Virginia House is vacant. The 100th House District covers all of the Eastern Shore and a portion of Norfolk.
The Democratic Party has scheduled a caucus for this Saturday, February 1, 2014 between 10 AM and 2 PM at Crossroads School. Not all of the Wards Corner area is within the 100th district so please check at the State Board of Elections to determine in which district you reside.

I have been contact by two candidates and here is the information I have received:
Peter Lalor for Delegate
I learned the importance of education from my parents, who never attended a day of high school, and my two sons graduated from local, public high schools. That is why I am focused on assuring better funding for our schools. Both sons served in the military (US Marine Corps and US Army Special Forces) so I know the importance of supporting our veterans.
I have a demonstrated commitment to community service and to making our community a better place to live, including my work with the Eastern Shore Broadband Authority to bring high speed Internet to rural communities, my work with community colleges expanding educational opportunities for our children, and my work with the hospitals to improve healthcare for all of our citizens.
VOTE THIS SATURDAY BETWEEN 10AM and 2PM
Voting Location: Cross Roads Elementary School, 8021 Old Ocean View Road
I will stand up to Richmond Republicans who want to control our lives. Individual choice in health care and other private matters must be protected from government interference.
We need to prevent outrageous tolling on the Midtown Tunnel, so that commuters are not forced to pay just to get to work.
Virginians must not be forced to send their hard earned money to support expanded medical care for residents of other states. Our money should be used to expand health care for Virginians where it can also help create good-paying jobs.
Willie C. Randall
For the 100th District
Virginia House Delegates
Willie began his career in the financial services industry on Virginia’s Eastern Shore in 1997. His goal is to help individuals and businesses achieve their financial objectives using appropriate investment strategies.
Willie is serving or has served on the following boards: Northampton County Board of Supervisors; Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees; Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors; Virginia State University Board of Visitors; Onancock Rotary Club; Accomack-Northampton Transportation Commission; Accomack-Northampton Planning District; and Eastern Shore Regional Jail Board.
The focus of my campaign is on three areas:
2. Jobs (Economic Development)
3. Helping military families
Education – I want Universal Pre-K similar to what we have in Northampton County. Our County was the test case for this concept. We proved that it could be done and I would like to see this opportunity for all children in our state.
Jobs – I want the state to adopt tax free zones for economically disadvantaged communities. We want to encourage companies to bring their businesses to communities like ours.
Reduce or eliminate state income tax on military retiree pensions – we are one of the largest military communities in the country and military retirees should be given more than a “thank you for your service.”the state to adopt tax free zones for economically disadvantaged communities. We want to encourage companies to bring their businesses to c
communities like ours.
Update: Mr. Hart’s campaign provided the following information:
