Delegate Greg Habeeb (R-Salem) was honored this past week when he received the Virginia Association of Commonwealth Attorney’s prestigious Champion of Justice Award for his efforts in the 2012 General Assembly session.
“The Virginia Association of Commonwealth Attorneys chose Delegate Habeeb to receive its Champion of Justice Award specifically for his patronage on the jury re-sentencing bill (HB77); and generally for his commonsense, bipartisan leadership on important legislation before the House Courts of Justice Committee,” said VACA President, Michael Doucette.
“Public safety issues have been at the forefront of my legislative agenda since I first came to the General Assembly in 2011,” Habeeb remarked. “As a father of three young children, keeping our community safe is one of my primary concerns. I’m honored to have been chosen by the Virginia Association of Commonwealth Attorneys to receive this award and will continue to work with law enforcement to ensure public safety.”
Habeeb hopes to continue his success from the past couple sessions in January, “I am very proud of the legislative accomplishments we’ve had over my first 2 sessions and I look forward to building on them in the 2013 Session. Once again we’ll be focused on streamlining government, improving our schools, improving our justice system and incentivizing job creation.”
Habeeb has already filed seven pieces of legislation for the 2013 session. You may obtain copies of these legislative items by contacting Delegate Habeeb’s office at (540) 915-2962.
