Republican Delegate Steve Landes has announced his plan to run for an 11th term. Landes represents Virginia’s 25th House district, which includes part of Albemarle County as well as localities in the Shenandoah Valley.

“It has been an honor and privilege to serve the citizens of the 25th District in the House of Delegates for these past 19 years,” Landes said in a press release. “Together we have accomplished a great deal in those years, but we still have more work to be able to continue to strengthen our economy, to build on the foundation of our schools, colleges and universities, and to continue the work of preserving our heritage, traditions and culture for future generations.”

Landes was first elected in 1995, and serves as the chairman of the House Education Committee and vice chairman of the House Appropriations Committee.

He faces a challenge from Democrat Angela Lynn, a former FEMA employee and teacher who has lived in Albemarle County for 13 years. Lynn, whose home is in White Hall, announced her plan to run last week.
