Former Virginia House of Delegates Speaker, retired teacher, and candidate for Governor Kirk Cox released the following statement Monday celebrating President’s Day.
“Today we honor the service and legacy of those who have led the United States over the past 245 years. The Commonwealth has a rich Presidential history. Eight Virginians have served in our nation’s highest office — more than from any other state — including Founding Fathers like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. As a former government teacher, I’d encourage everybody to take some time today to learn something you didn’t know about one of our former presidents, so that we may continue to pass on our nation’s history to the next generation.”
