State Sen. Lynwood Lewis (D-Accomac) held a town hall meeting in Mathews last Wednesday, outlining his background, giving an overview of his responsibilities in the General Assembly, and providing an update on actions taken during the past session. He also fielded questions from the sparse group of residents who attended.
Lewis is an attorney in a small law practice in Accomac with one other lawyer. He has an 8-year-old son. Earlier this year, he won a special election to replace former Sen. Ralph Northam, who was elected in November to serve as lieutenant governor. Lewis had served 10 years in the House of Delegates representing the 100th District, which covers part of the Eastern Shore and part of Norfolk.
Currently serving on three Senate committees—Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources; Local Government; Rehabilitation and Social Services—Lewis is also on the Modeling and Simulation Advisory Council, and the Recurrent Flooding Study Subcommittee.
