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. Addressed to Sen. Mark Obenshain (VA-26) and Del. Robert Bell (VA-58), the chairmen of the Courts of Justice Committees in the Virginia Senate and House, the letter requests for current candidates to be removed until interviews and vetting processes have been made by the delegation and the Loudoun Bar Association.
“I believe government should be fair and transparent, and the selection of Circuit Court Judge should include a thorough vetting with the involvement of the entire delegation that represents Loudoun County,” said Delegate John Bell (VA-87). “Anything less than an open and fair process is a dereliction of duty and an injustice to the people of Loudoun County.”
