RICHMOND, VA – Virginia House of Delegates Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford) announced Tuesday that Mike Makee is the Republican nominee for the Second House District to succeed retiring Delegate Mark Dudenhefer.
We are excited to have Mike join our impressive slate of candidates across Virginia. Mike is a strong leader who believes in the ideas and values that House Republicans have championed over the last 15 years—creating good jobs, responsibly balancing budgets, and solving Virginia’s toughest challenges. I am confident that he will run a strong campaign, and I look forward to seeing him in the House of Delegates (said Speaker Howell).
Makee is resident and community leader of Stafford County. He served in the United States Navy for over 20 years, including deployments during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Makee graduated from the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis and received a Master’s degree from the Naval Postgraduate School. Makee is currently a member of the Stafford County Utilities Commission representing the Rock Hill district.
As a member of the House of Delegates, I want to use my leadership skills, experience in the Navy, and understanding of our community to grow and strengthen our economy, work to solve our transportation problems, and fight for a better future for everyone in Northern Virginia (said Makee). I look forward to campaigning to every voter in every corner of the district and earning the support of my neighbors and our community.
