Delegate Suit Resigns from state House

Anita Kumar

Del. Terrie Lynne Suit (R-Virginia Beach) resigned from the state House of Delegates to run Williams Mullen's Hampton Roads lobbying operation.

Her last day will be Oct. 12.

"Delegate Suit's service to the people of Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, the Commonwealth, and the House of Delegates has been exceptional and exemplary,'' House Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford) said. "She has been a fierce and steadfast advocate for the people of the 81st District, as well as a prominent and effective champion for the men and women of the United States Armed Services."

Suit's 1999 election led to Virginia's first-ever Republican majority in the House. Gov.

Timothy M. Kaine (D) will call a special election to fill Suit's seat.
