Favorite 2015 yard sign

Donald Smith election, mtns 012By Lynn R. Mitchell

The “LYNN” jumped out at me every time I saw one of these signs along the roadways in the 25th House District. My son and others took note because of the last name. If anyone sees one of these in the landfill, I want one! For the record, Democrat Angela Lynn ran against Republican Steve Landes.

Delegate Steve Landes (R-25th House District) announced Monday that he will seek an eleventh term in the Virginia House of Delegates, an area that includes parts of Augusta, Albemarle, and Rockingham counties. He will have a Democratic opponent, Angela Lynn, who announced last week that she would seek the Democratic nomination to run against Landes (see 25th House District: Landes to have Democratic challenger).

Landes and wife Angela, an Augusta County assistant commonwealth’s attorney, have a son and live in Augusta County. He is vice president of market development for Blue Ridge Bank.

Delegate Steve Landes (R-25th House) will have a Democratic challenger, according to the Daily Progress (see Democrat Angela Lynn files to enter race for 25th District seat):

Angela Lynn, 60, a White Hall resident and former intergovernmental and external affairs worker for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, filed campaign paperwork this week in a bid for the seat held by 10-term incumbent Del. R. Steven Landes, R-Weyers Cave.

Though Delegate Landes was coy about running for re-election, there are no indications that he will not do so:

Landes, 55, would not say Thursday whether he plans to seek re-election.

“At this point, I’m going to focus on the issues I’ve got going on down here,” Landes said Thursday from his Richmond office. “I’m headed in that direction, but I won’t make a determination for at least a few weeks.”

The district is overwhelmingly Republican. Before Delegate Landes, it was represented for decades by Republican Delegate Pete Giesen.
