Va. Labor Union Elects First Female President

August 16, 2010

The Virginia AFL-CIO has elected its first woman to lead the statewide labor organization. Delegates at the state convention in Williamsburg have elected Doris Crouse-Mays as its president.

She became the union organization's secretary-treasurer in 2006, the first female to hold a Virginia AFL-CIO executive office.

Delegates also elected Ray Davenport as their secretary-treasurer. Davenport was labor and industry commissioner under Govs. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.

The AFL-CIO represents 150,000 Virginia union members.
