As a resident of the 64th District, I am elated that Rex Alphin is running for a seat in the House of Delegates.

I have known Rex all of my life. We were classmates throughout our school years and have continued our friendship for over 60 years. Rex’s true colors of compassion, loyalty, commitment and perseverance were noted in his early years and are still very strong qualities in his life today.
