Cathy Copeland Announces Candidacy for House of Delegates

Harrisonburg, December 4, 2018​ — Cathy Copeland is excited to announce that she is running to be the Delegate for Virginia’s 26th District. Cathy has lived in Rockingham County and Harrisonburg for nearly a decade and works as an adjunct instructor of Writing & Rhetoric at James Madison University (JMU). She is a steering committee member for the nonpartisan ForHHS2 group, which advocated for a second high school to be built in Harrisonburg. She is also the 6th Congressional District’s representative for the Virginia Democratic Women’s Caucus. Recently, she completed the 2018 Political Leaders Program with the nonpartisan Sorensen Institute at the University of Virginia.

During Cathy’s campaign, she will focus on inclusivity, transparency, honesty, and collaboration. As Delegate, Cathy will prioritize our district’s economy and infrastructure, allocate more state money for education, address physical and mental health concerns, and work to compensate state and local employees fairly.

Although there are many issues Virginia needs to address, Cathy is proud that District 26 has been at the forefront in welcoming immigrants, in supporting innovative education approaches, and in growing Virginia’s agrotourism industry. Cathy wants to work with her constituents to solve problems and continue to enhance life in the Shenandoah Valley.
