FREDERICKSBURG -- Today, Senator Bryce Reeves (R-Spotsylvania) announced that Spotsylvania County Commonwealth’s Attorney Travis Bird has endorsed his candidacy for re-election to Virginia’s 17th Senate District.
"Bryce Reeves is a well respected legislator who fights not only for the rights of his constituents, but for all Virginians,” said Bird. “Bryce has shown himself to be a principled gentleman of character and faith. His dedication to our country as an army ranger and to our state as a police officer and state senator show the kind of man that he is, and that is who I support for the 17th District of the Virginia Senate."
Just this year, Reeves and Bird worked together to pass legislation that requires a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of six months for any person who maliciously kills or injures an animal owned, used, or trained by a law-enforcement agency, regional jail, or the Department of Corrections.
Reeves said, “Under Travis Bird’s leadership, Spotsylvania County has become a safer environment for families and businesses. He is heavily involved in the community and has a respected reputation for ensuring justice is served. It’s an honor to have his endorsement and support as we continue to build momentum towards the June 11th Primary.”
Bryce Reeves is a small business owner, former Army Ranger, and former Prince William County narcotics detective. He currently represents the 17th District in the Virginia Senate, which includes the City of Fredericksburg and the Counties of Albemarle (part), Culpeper (part), Louisa (part), Orange, and Spotsylvania (part). Senator Reeves Chairs the Senate Committee on Rehabilitation and Social Services, in addition to sitting on the Committees on Courts of Justice, General Laws and Technology, Rules, and Privileges and Elections.
