Many incumbent House seats flipped from red to blue last night (Tuesday 11/7). That included the district 13 seat in Manassas, with Danica Roem slated to replace incumbent Bob Marshall and become the first openly transgender lawmaker to serve in state legislature.
Richmond parent and education advocate Kenya Gibson, endorsed by City Councilwoman Kim Gray, won the school board seat with 46% of votes Tuesday (11/7). Cindy Menz-Erb finished next with 27%.
Menz-Erb, who has been in the seat since March, was endorsed by Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney in early October. Menz-Erb has also been chairing school facilities efforts, which has become a hot button issue in Richmond after Stoney sent a letter to the School Board last week expressing disappointment about failure to submit a facilities plan by October 16th.
