Oakton & Vienna Patch reports on Delegate Keam's 2011 session
General Assembly Roundup: Mark Keam
Wins, losses from the 2011 legislative session
RICHMOND – The 2011 General Assembly session has ended, but a special session to deal with redistricting will be meeting this spring. Before the new session begins, let's see how our representatives fared.
Let's take a look back at the wins and losses of those legislators who represent Oakton.
Del. Mark Keam
It was only a year ago Del. Mark Keam (D-35th District) became the first Korean-American and first Asian-born immigrant to be sworn into the Virginia General Assembly. During this year's session, 33 percent of his bills passed both houses.
He successfully passed these bills and budget amendments.
These are some of the other bills and resolutions Keam proposed that did not make it through both houses.
Despite his successes, Keam said in a statement he is unsure of whether he will continue to serve in the House of Delegates. He claims redistricting is one of the factors that will affect his decision. After discussing his options with his family and supporters, he will announce his re-election plans in April.
