Norfolk City Councilmember Andria McClellan announced last week both the launch of her new leadership political action committee, “Access for Virginia,” as well as her exploration of a bid for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia. McClellan will spend the next few months listening to Virginians across the Commonwealth and supporting candidates on the ballot this November.
Access for Virginia is rooted in the belief that every Virginian deserves equal opportunity for a safe, equitable, and prosperous future. The PAC will support candidates whose agendas include smart strategies to expand opportunity across the Commonwealth.
“The past few months have shone a long overdue spotlight on the inequality to access across the Commonwealth of Virginia and beyond. We need a Virginia that works for everyone — no matter the color of your skin, your zip code, who you love or how you identify, a Virginia that has more access and opportunity for all. I know that together we can build a Virginia with innovation, connection, equal justice, hope, clean energy and opportunity for all our communities. That is why I have decided to explore a run for the office of Lieutenant Governor,” said McClellan.
McClellan has served as a member of Norfolk City Council representing Superward 6 since 2016. Throughout her tenure on the council, she has served her 125,000 constituents by focusing on a pro-growth, innovative platform that includes improving broadband access, diversifying the economy around the largest naval base in the world, finding solutions and funding to address sea level rise and climate mitigation, and creating a more engaged, accessible, and transparent city government.
