Thank you so much for the opportunity to serve you in the Virginia House of Delegates for the 2019 Legislative Session.
This year, we celebrate the 400th anniversary of the Virginia General Assembly. It was back in 1619 that the first representative legislature 0f the Western Hemisphere and the New World formed here in Virginia. I feel grateful and honored to share in this commemorative year in our Commonwealth and nation’s history. (To learn more, see the American Evolution.)
CHANTILLY, Va. — Members of the Loudoun delegation to the Virginia General Assembly signed a letter calling for a thorough and fair process regarding candidates for appointment to the Loudoun Circuit Court.

STERLING, Va.: Delegate John J. Bell (D - Loudoun) released the following statement in response to residents of his district in Sterling finding KKK fliers on Friday morning.
“The presence of the KKK, with its long history of violence and intimidation, is not welcome here in Loudoun County and the 87th District. I strongly denounce the KKK’s message, especially since the fliers stir unwarranted ethnic and racial prejudice against our neighbors. We do not and will not accept bigotry and hatred,” said Delegate Bell. “Hate has no home here.”
RICHMOND, Va.: Delegate John J. Bell (D – Loudoun) passed five bills during the 2018 legislative session.
“I’m proud of my accomplishments in the House of Delegates, and am always honored to do the good work that the people of the 87th District sent me to Richmond to do,” said Delegate John J. Bell. “These five bills will help the Commonwealth save taxpayer dollars, help EMS volunteers, and aid small businesses continue operating. I am so thankful to have the ability to improve the lives of those in Loudoun and Prince William Counties.”
