Delegate Glenn Davis (R-Virginia Beach) is considering a run for Mayor of Virginia Beach as current Mayor Will Sessoms steps down. Sessoms last day in office will be April 30th.
Glenn Davis won a close race in November for his delegate seat. Should Davis run for Mayor this could easily upset the very slim majority (51-49) Republicans have in the House of Delegates. From the Richmond Times-Dispatch on Wednesday Davis said:
“First, I want to extend a warm thank you to Mayor Will Sessoms for his leadership and commitment to making Virginia Beach the best city in the world. While I’m honored by the amount of calls of support and encouragement for me to consider continuing my public service by running for mayor, today is a day to thank Mayor Sessoms for his decades of service to our city.
“I am presently representing the citizens of Virginia Beach in a special session of the General Assembly in Richmond and then will travel to join my wife, Chelle, as she is recognized by the National Board of Operation Homefront for her work assisting our military families. In the days ahead, I will continue to consult with my family, friends, and supporters on how I can best continue to serve our great city, and am grateful for everyone’s input and counsel.”
