Central Virginia - On October 26, 2010, Delegate Christopher K. Peace (R- Hanover) will join Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-1) as he speaks to over 130 senior government students at King William High School about the importance of continued civic engagement as students continue on after graduation. “Parents and educators across the Commonwealth are doing important work; teaching our young people about the importance of democracy in the United States and the Commonwealth along with the role we, as citizens, play in the process,” Peace said.
Peace further asserted, “One of these exemplary educators is King William High School’s AP government and history teacher, Connie Plum. She ensures that eligible students are registered to vote. Mrs. Plum gives her students voter registration applications upon their 18th birthday. She believes her students are our future community and business leaders and works diligently to encourage them to be active in the political process and the development of public policy.”
Delegate Christopher K. Peace was elected to his third term representing the 97th District of the Virginia House of Delegates. The 97th District includes parts of Hanover, Caroline, King William, King and Queen, Henrico, Spotsylvania Counties and all of New Kent County.
