Herring Reacts To Board Of Health Vote


    Leesburg – Democratic candidate for Attorney General State Senator Mark Herring (Loudoun & Fairfax) released the following statement today after the Virginia State Board of Health reversed their earlier decision and voted to adopt new regulations:

    “It is deeply disturbing that Virginia’s Attorney General can act outside the scope of his legal authority, threaten and bully a Board he is charged to represent and successfully intimidate them into reversing a policy decision that the Attorney General personally disagrees with.

    This episode only underscores the need for an Attorney General who will take the politics out of the office and apply laws evenly and fairly.”
