Those who know him have heard the news already. My friend Terrence Boulden passed away today at the age of 35.
We are shocked and deeply saddened by this horrible news, and our prayers are with him and his family, and those closest to him.
Terrence was a dedicated Republican, and a good person. Possessed of a nearly relentlessly positive attitude toward life and politics, TB inspired those around him, and served his community, his Party, and his friends with good cheer, humility, and healthy amounts of humor—but also with determination and grit.
I wish he’d have made a run for Supervisor in his native Woodbridge in Prince William County. He would have rocked it.
What he did do, though, was impressive when it comes to building his very effective Young Republicans organization, and energizing support behind George Allen, Mark Obenshain, Ken Cuccinelli, Ed Gillespie, and numerous other GOP luminaries.
We in the Virginia GOP, and as his fellow Virginians, are better people for having known him.
May he rest in God’s peace. He will be sorely missed.
