Delegate Kenneth C. Alexander on track to fill Virginia Senate Seat

Del. Kenneth C. Alexander of Norfolk  is on track to fill the Virginia Senate seat of the late Sen. Yvonne B. Miller. A five-term Democratic delegate,  Alexander faces no opposition in a special election September 4 to fill the unexpired 5th District seat.

A longtime Miller friend and supporter, Alexander carries the endorsement of the late senator's family. Miller, who died July 3 of cancer, was the first black female in the Virginia General Assembly and the first to head a Senate committee.

"Senator Yvonne B. Miller encouraged me at every step, reminding me that service is a journey and membership is repaid by giving back," Alexander has said.
Alexander, whose campaign motto is "An Experienced and Proven Leader," was first elected to the House of Delegates in 2002. He is a former chair of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus.
A 200+ member, Alexander has been a table sponsor of the annual 200+ Scholars Breakfast. He has also helped to facilitate the itinerary of our annual Caravan to Richmond, which affords  high school students and others an up-close-and personal view of state government in action.
