2nd Congressional District Leadership

Congressman Scott Taylor

Scott was raised on the Delmarva Peninsula in a little hamlet named Hebron in Maryland. At age 11, he began working on a farm and soon after was introduced to the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Program of America. The program forever changed his life and set him on a path from the Virginia shore to the Iraq desert.

Shortly after graduation, Scott decided to enlist in the Navy. He signed up to join one of the most feared fighting forces in the world, the Navy SEALS. After completing the six-month BUD/S training course in Coronado, California, Scott was assigned to SEAL Team 4 and served in the United States and Latin America, where he developed a fluency in Spanish.

After September 11, Scott chose to re-enlist and in 2005 was sent to Baghdad and Ramadi as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom where he served as a Navy SEAL sniper. While on a combat mission, Scott was severely injured and was Medevac’d out of Iraq to Germany, then eventually back to the States.

In 2013, Scott became a member of the House of Delegates, where he represented the 85th District which is principally the Kempsville and Town Center area in Virginia Beach. With the help of his GI Bill, Scott earned a degree in International Relations from Harvard University Extension and is currently pursuing his masters in the same field. He holds a Master’s Certificate in Government Contracting at Old Dominion University.

In January, 2017, Scott was sworn into the U.S. House of Representatives as Congressman for Virginia’s Second District. He is the first freshman member from Virginia to ever be appointed to the Appropriations Committee for a full term.

As a Member of Congress, one of Scott’s primary goals is to give his constituents a voice on the House Appropriations Committee, which oversees federal expenditures. As a combat veteran, Scott is working to ensure veterans and their families are taken care of, our economy continues to improve, and national security remains a top priority.

Virginia Second Congressional District - Virginia State Senate Representatives

The Virginia Senate

The Senate of Virginia is the upper house of the Virginia General Assembly. The Senate is composed of 40 Senators representing an equal number of single-member constituent districts. The Senate is presided over by the Lieutenant Governor of Virginia. Prior to the American War of Independence, the upper house of the General Assembly was represented by the Virginia Governor’s Council, consisting of up to 12 executive counselors appointed by the Colonial Royal Governor as advisers and jurists.

The Lieutenant Governor presides daily over the Virginia Senate. In the Lieutenant Governor’s absence, the President pro Tempore presides, usually a powerful member of the majority party. The Senate is equal with the House of Delegates, the lower chamber of the legislature, except that taxation bills must originate in the House, similar to the federal U.S. Congress. Members of the Virginia Senate are elected every four years by the voters of the 40 senatorial districts on the Tuesday succeeding the first Monday in November.

Senator Tommy Norment

Tommy is a champion of Virginia’s right-to-work laws and is equally committed to promoting transparency in government. As a graduate of public schools and the father of a teacher, Tommy fully understands the need for our Commonwealth to provide a high quality education to all students. A strong advocate for higher education, he has worked tirelessly to ensure our public colleges and universities remain at the top of the national rankings.

Virginia Second Congressional District - Virginia House of Delegates Representatives

The Virginia House of Delegates

The Virginia House of Delegates is one of two parts in the Virginia General Assembly, the other being the Senate of Virginia. It has 100 members elected for terms of two years; unlike most states, these elections take place during odd-numbered years. The House is presided over by the Speaker of the House, who is elected from among the House membership by the Delegates. The Speaker is usually a member of the majority party and, as Speaker, becomes the most powerful member of the House. The House shares legislative power with the Senate of Virginia, the upper house of the Virginia General Assembly. The House of Delegates is the modern-day successor to the Virginia House of Burgesses, which first met at Jamestown in 1619. The House is divided into Democratic and Republican caucuses. In addition to the Speaker, there is a majority leader, majority caucus chair, minority leader, minority caucus chair, and the chairs of the several committees of the House.

The House of Burgesses was the first elected legislative body in the New World. Originally having 22 members, the House of Burgesses met from 1619 through 1632 in the choir of the church at Jamestown. From 1632 to 1699 the legislative body met at four different state houses in Jamestown. The first state house convened at the home of Colonial Governor Sir John Harvey from 1632 to 1656. The Burgesses convened at the second state house from 1656 until it was destroyed in 1660. Historians have yet to precisely identify its location.

The House has met in Virginia’s Capitol Building, designed by Thomas Jefferson, since 1788. The legislative body met from 1788 to 1904 in what is known as today the Old Hall of the House of Delegates or commonly referred to as the Old House Chamber. The Old House Chamber is part of the original Capitol building structure. It measures 76 feet in width and is filled today with furnishings that resemble what the room would have looked like during its time of use. There are many bronze and marble busts of historic Virginians on display in the Old House Chamber, including: George Mason, George Wythe, Patrick Henry, Richard Henry Lee, and Meriwether Lewis. From 1904 to 1906, University of Virginia graduate and architect John K. Peeples designed and built compatible classical wings to the west and east side of the Capitol building. The new wings added to provide more space and serve as the legislative chambers in the Virginia General Assembly, the Senate of Virginia resides in the west chamber and the House of Delegates resides in the east chamber. The General Assembly members and staff operate from offices in the General Assembly Building, located in Capitol Square. Prior to 1788 the House of Delegates met in the Colonial Capital of Williamsburg.

Republican Party of Virginia - Second Congressional District Chairman Dennis Free

Chairman Dennis Free

Dennis Free is a native of Maryland, but moved to Virginia to attend the Virginia Commonwealth University. In 1977, he graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a B.S. in Administration of Justice and Public Safety. In 1978, he settled in Virginia Beach when he joined the Virginia Beach Police Department. Dennis served on the Virginia Beach Police Department for 28 years with distinction, as he has been awarded the Silver Star for Bravery, Medal of Merit for Bravery, and the Life Saving Medal.

He worked in Uniform Patrol, Beat Operations, Street Crime Tactical Operations, Special Operations, SWAT and the Office of Professional Standards. While on the Virginia Beach Police Department, Dennis also obtained his Masters Degree in Public Administration from the Old Dominion University, where he finished as the top graduate and was awarded the Wolfgang Pender Award for outstanding academic achievement. In 2006, Dennis retired from the police force with the rank of Captain.

Even after Dennis retired from the Virginia Beach Police Department, he continued to serve and protect by joining the Virginia Beach Sheriff’s Office. In 2006, Sheriff Paul Lanteigne appointed Dennis Chief Deputy. As Chief Deputy, Dennis supervised the fiscal operation of the office, analyzed the budget, coordinated schedules, and evaluated the effectiveness of existing programs. In 2010, Dennis easily transitioned to his current position of Undersheriff after Sheriff Stolle appointed him to the position. Dennis oversees over 500 employees to ensure an effective operation of the office.

As Undersheriff, Dennis proposed legislative changes to allow inmates to clean graffiti from private property, which saved the city $20,000 each year. Moreover, Dennis was integral in developing a new 5-year food contract for inmates, which resulted in saving $350,000 each year over the life of the contract. He also revised inmate canteen procedures that resulted in a doubling of revenues to $500,000 a year, which offset the costs of operation.
Not only has Dennis worked in law enforcement for over 30 years, he has also been involved in the local community in order to make Virginia Beach a better place to live. Dennis served as the Chief Executive Officer on a project to build a National Aviation Monument, which honors veterans in naval aviation. This monument is located on 25th Street. Dennis obtained private funding for this project without any cost to taxpayers. In addition, Dennis is on the Board of Directors for the Assisi House, which is an organization that seeks to build affordable housing for mentally disabled adults. The organization’s mission is to provide this service at no cost to taxpayers.

Dennis serves on the Board of Directors for the Pungo Strawberry Festival, which is an event that attracts more than 200,000 visitors each year and has raised in excess of $800,000 to provide scholarships for deserving students. Dennis is a member of numerous organizations, including the Fraternal Order of Police, Police Association of Virginia, Virginia Sheriff’s Association, Police Supervisor’s Association, American Correctional Association, Naval Institute, Knights of Columbus, Virginia Gang Investigators Association, and American Society of Public Administrators.

Dennis has been married to his wife Cindy for over 30 years. They have one son, Chris, who is a graduate of Barton College.
In his spare time, Dennis enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, lifting weights, sports shooting, and playing golf.
