Election 2013: Attorney General candidate Rob Bell

 Delegate Rob Bell stopped by SWAC Political Breakfast on Saturday to talk with folks about his run for Attorney General. A young man on the move who is serious about what he does, he is more than qualified to serve as Virginia's Top Cop. 

 Delegate Bell is knowledgeable in criminal law, and has been pro-active in pushing legislation to crack down on drunk driving and criminal sex offenders. His work on the Tebow Bill has been encouraging to the homeschool community as he works to open public school sports programs to athletically-minded homeschool students whose parents pay the same taxes as public school parents.

 Bell talked about his campaign with reporter Bob Stuart of the Waynesboro News-Virginian.

 A former state prosecutor for five years, Rob has patroned the Tebow Bill as well as photo ID bills. He was an honors graduate from the University of Virginia and the University of Virginia Law School. In the Virginia General Assembly, he has written laws that crack down on drunk driving and, as a result, was named MADD (Virginia Chapter) 2005 Outstanding Legislator. He has been instrumental in writing laws to ban criminal sex offenders from school property during school hours and to require additional background checks on school personnel.

In 2009 Rob received the Act, Honor, Hope award from the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance to recognize his work in the General Assembly.

Bell served as Chairman of the Virginia State Crime Commission and worked as Delegate for safer streets and neighborhoods.

A former Eagle Scout, he now holds the Delegate seat once held by Thomas Jefferson. Delegate Bell and his wife live in Albemarle County and have two children.
