Virginia's 26th

Virginia's 26th Senate district includes the City of Harrisonburg and the counties of Rockingham (part), Shenandoah, Page, Warren, and Rappahannock.

The Shenandoah and Page Valleys are some of the most beautiful areas in all of Virginia. Rich in beauty, history, and heritage, people from around the world are attracted to the bountiful entertainment and sites right here in the 26th District.

Not sure if you're in the 26th? Find out here, examine a detailed map of the 26th (pdf), or view a map of all of Virginia's state senate districts (pdf).

  • SJ 256, my resolution which could result in a constitutional amendment that expands charter schools here in the Commonwealth, just passed the House of Delegates by a vote of 58-42. Big thanks to Delegate Rob Bell who also worked very hard on this issue.

  • Great visit with 4-H Clubs from Warren and Rockingham Counties along with Members of the Future Farmers of America from Strasburg; sharp young men and women who are engaged in their communities. I am always encouraged by the enthusiasm of our future agricultural leaders.
