Greg Habeeb for Delegate
Habeeb Announces Reelection Bid
SALEM – In an e-mail to supporters Wednesday, Republican Greg Habeeb announced he will seek reelection to the Virginia House of Delegates this November.
“All elected officials should ask themselves everyday whether they are the right person for the job. Over the last few weeks I’ve been asking myself, and many of you, that very question.
“After much prayer and consultation with my family and constituents, I am excited to announce that I am running for re-election this coming November.”
Habeeb was elected to the General Assembly in a Special Election in January. Habeeb succeeded House of Delegates Majority Leader Morgan Griffith who was elected to Congress.
Habeeb said he is proud of the work done in the General Assembly this year, but believes there is more that needs to be done.
“Our fight in Richmond is not an easy one but we have proven that when we work together and stick to our principles, we can accomplish great things,” Habeeb wrote.
Currently, the Eighth District includes the City of Salem and part of Roanoke County. Under the House of Delegates’ proposed redistricting plan, the Eighth District would grow to include Craig County, part of Montgomery County and part of the Town of Christiansburg.
