Bourne announces candidacy for House of Delegates seat

01/11/2017 1:30 PM by

Surprising no one, Jeff Bourne (Richmond School Board 3rd District) announced his candidacy for the House of Delegates District 71 seat that Jennifer McClellan will be vacating.

No other candidates have yet announced for the heavily Democrat-leaning district. No date has been set for the special election.

Jennifer McClellan was elected yesterday to fill Donald McEachin’s State Senate District 9 seat. McEachin won election to the newly drawn 4th Congressional District in November.

Bourne was first elected to the 3rd District School Board seat in 2012. He flirted with a mayoral run in 2016, before choosing to run for re-election to the School Board instead.

Currently Bourne serves as the Deputy Attorney General for transportation, real estate and construction litigation for the Commonwealth of Virginia. Prior to his appointment in 2014, he was head of Government Relations at the Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority. He’d served as Deputy Chief of Staff for the Mayor of Richmond until his 2012 election to the School Board. Bourne has a B.A and J.D. from The College of William & Mary.
