Earlier today, House Republican Leader Todd Gilbert appointed Del. Israel O’Quinn, R-Washington, to serve as Deputy Republican Leader for the 2023-24 General Assembly.
Statement of Speaker Todd Gilbert:
“It’s more critical than ever that Southwest Virginia continues to have a strong voice as part of our leadership team. Israel O’Quinn has proven himself time and time again to be an able leader in not only his community, but also in our Republican caucus and on the floor of the House. I look forward to working with him and the rest of our Republican team as we continue the fight for common-sense solutions to improve the lives of every Virginian.”
Statement of Deputy Republican Leader Israel O’Quinn:
“It’s an honor to once again have been appointed to serve on our House Republican leadership team. Working with Leader Todd Gilbert, Chair Amanda Batten, and Whip Michael Webert, we will promote policies that will make Virginia the best place to live, work, and raise a family and we will also oppose legislative overreach. I’m proud to represent Southwest Virginia and believe every part of our Commonwealth should have a seat at the table.”
