Newly elected Republican Delegate Emily Brewer wants to meet with the seven localities she will represent in the Virginia House of Delegates before drafting new legislation.

The 2018 General Assembly session begins Jan. 10.

In addition to Isle of Wight, the 64th District includes portions of the cities of Suffolk and Franklin and Prince George, Surry, Southampton and Sussex counties.

Brewer plans to meet with Isle of Wight County officials in December, as well as the other six localities. Meanwhile, Isle of Wight County published its legislative priority list in October, which includes a call for full state funding for public education, equity between counties, cities and towns when it comes to taxing authority, addressing unfunded mandates, providing full funding for federal inmates at Western Tidewater Regional Jail and supporting a fuel tax floor to ensure sufficient transportation funding.
