Marsden plans to buy a house in his Senate district
Dave Marsden rented the lower level of a house for $600 a month from longtime state Democratic donors in Burke to run for state Senate.
Now that he's won -- and in stunning fashion -- will Marsden actually move into the 37th District?
Marsden says yes, eventually.
"That's certainly the plan,'' he said.
After the busy 60-day session in Richmond, Marsden said he will spend time fixing up his family's house just three miles down the road from the rental house and put it on the market.
Until then, Marsden will continue to sleep in the rental house and go back to his Jackson Street home during the day, which is officially designated as his legislative office, to check mail and see his family. While in Richmond, he stays with House Minority Leader Ward Armstrong (D-Henry).
Some colleagues have suggested that he not move and just wait until lawmakers could redistrict his family's house into the district, but Marsden said he could not count on that. "You don't know how that's going to go,'' he said.
