Salem – 8th District Delegate-elect Greg Habeeb thanked volunteers and voters at his campaign headquarters Tuesday night. Habeeb says he is proud to have the opportunity to serve the voters of the 8th District.Make us proud, big guy.
“To have this honor to serve means so much to me and my family,” Habeeb told supporters gathered at his campaign headquarters. “I said at the beginning of this campaign: ‘the true genius of the American system is the American people.’ Tonight, and over the course of this campaign, you proved this to be true. You made tonight’s victory possible. As your Delegate in the Virginia General Assembly, I will take the strong conservative values of this District to Richmond.”
The Delegate-elect said the issues important to the people of the community were always the focus of his campaign, and why he thinks the voters chose him.
“This election was about jobs, leadership and families. I think the people of the 8th District understood I had the unique skill set to bring new jobs to our community, work in a bipartisan fashion with state leaders and protect our conservative family values.”
Habeeb will leave for Richmond tonight and be sworn in Wednesday.
