Lynchburg Teacher and Businesswoman Katie Webb Cyphert Officially Announces Campaign for House of Delegates in 22nd District
Lynchburg, VA - Local educator, mother and businesswoman Katie Webb Cyphert announced her candidacy for the House of Delegates in Virginia's 22nd District along with over 80 friends, family members and supporters at the Anne Spencer House and Garden in Lynchburg Monday. The event is the beginning of a Campaign Kick Off Tour of the 22nd District that will continue Tuesday May 14th with stops in Bedford and Franklin Counties.
"It's been over 10 years since the incumbent has been challenged, and it's time for a careful examination of the policies," said Cyphert. As Delegate, Katie will turn the focus in Richmond from devisive social issues to the real concerns of local families. Katie explained, "My family and I face the same problems you and your family face. We need decent job opportunities, first class education, safe neighborhoods, affordable health care and a stable economy where we can retire with dignity. These are the issues on which our representatives should focus."
Katie is seeking the nomination of the Democratic parties of Franklin, Bedford, and Campbell Counties as well as the City of Lynchburg Democratic Committee. Should it be necessary, a joint caucus will be held before the end of the month. Election Day is Tuesday November 5th, 2013.
