Houck Promotes Kid's Health with Former Virginia First Lady

October 24, 2011

Virginia Senator Edd Houck (D-17th) was in Charlottesville Monday to promote children's health.

The Democrat from Spotsylvania visited the Jefferson Area Children's Health Improvement Program (CHiP) along with former Virginia First Lady Anne Holton, the wife of former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine.

Houck, whose bid for re-election is being challenged by Republican Bryce Reeves, says he helped restore funds to CHiP so its services can be continues throughout the state.

"This is going to be a good healthy beginning of life for many many children in this region," he commented. "We know that healthy children lead to more productivity and success in school, and success in school leads to productive life, so it's very rewarding to me to have a role in the work that is done here at CHiP and across the state."

Due to redistricting, the 17th District now includes all of part of eight precincts in Albemarle County. The district also includes Orange County, the City of Fredericksburg and parts of Culpeper, Louisa and Spotsylvania counties.
