Republican to Challenge Creigh Deeds in 25th District

June 28, 2011

A Charlottesville attorney has added his name to the ballot for the 25th District Senate Seat.

T.J. Aldous announced his candidacy on Tuesday at the steps of the Albemarle County Circuit Courthouse. He is seeking the Republican nomination to challenge incumbent Creigh Deeds.

Aldous practices estate planning and business law. He says his campaign will focus on creating a job-friendly environment and will center on education and family.

"Raising taxes at this point is too hard on families," said Aldous who wants to ensure taxes don't hurt the average working-class family. "I know how hard it is to make ends meet everyday, and trying every month to balance that budge, those extra few dollars here and there can be used to help feed my family."

The 25th District stretches from Central Virginia west to the West Virginia state line and includes all of Charlottesville and Nelson County. It still covers most of Albemarle County, but gained the Crozet and White Hall areas from the old 24th District and lost the Keswick and Cismont areas to the new 17th District as a result of redistricting.
