House's deputy clerk to serve in Afghanistan
The deputy clerk of the Virginia House of Delegates, an Army reservist, has been called to active duty and will soon be deployed for a year-long tour in Afghanistan, House Clerk Bruce Jamerson has announced.
In an e-mail to delegates and legislative staff, Jamerson wrote that Deputy Clerk for Committee Operations Scott Maddrea has been a reservist for the past 20 years, most recently serving as an instructor at the Army's Command and General Staff College. But Maddrea's primary training is as a military policeman, and he is being deployed overseas in that capacity.
Maddrea's last day at the Capitol is Thursday; he is expected to be absent until Labor Day 2011, meaning he'll miss the 2011 legislative session and any special sessions that are held in the next year. Jamerson indicated that Maddrea's duties will temporarily fall to other staffers.
"I join all Virginians in thanking Scott for his dedication, service and sacrifice for the commonwealth and our country. I wish Scott a safe tour of duty, and look forward to seeing him back on Capitol Square soon," Gov. Bob McDonnell said in a statement to The Post.
