SALEM, Va. (Roanoke Times) Roanoke County Supervisor Joe McNamara became the first person to announce he will seek the House of Delegates seat being vacated by Del. Greg Habeeb.
The longtime supervisor declared his candidacy for the 8th District House of Delegates seat Monday morning at one of the two ice cream shops he owns, Salem Ice Cream Parlor on West Main Street.
Surrounded by numerous prominent local Republicans, McNamara touted his history on the board of abiding by a conservative budget plan and lowering taxes for county residents as well as his conservative positions of opposing abortion and defending the Second Amendment. He said he’ll carry those values to Richmond.
