Is Virginia Really a Purple State?
with Bob Calhoun
Robert Calhoun will address some of the “hot button” issues that were discussed during the recently-completed 2017 Virginia General Assembly session in Richmond and provide some perspective on the upcoming statewide contests for the three top elective offices that will be determined in the general election taking place this November in Virginia.
Bob is an attorney with the law firm of Redmon, Peyton and Braswell, LLP, in Alexandria, Virginia, specializing in government relations, transportation, planning, and zoning. He is currently a member of the Virginia Code Commission. He was selected as Director of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, serving from 1998-2003. Bob was elected to the Alexandria City Council on the Republican ticket, serving three two-year terms. In 1984, Bob ran again for a vacant seat on the City Council and served until December 1988, when he was elected to the Virginia State Senate. He represented the people of the 30th Senate District, which included most of Alexandria and portions of Fairfax County, until 1995.
Bob Calhoun earned his Bachelor of Arts degree at Tufts University and is a graduate of Yale Law School. He was born and grew up in Oak Park, Illinois. Bob and his wife Sandy are longtime residents of Alexandria as well as active members of Westminster.
The Men of Westminster take an annual retreat in February to the Hallowood Retreat and Conference Center in Comus, Maryland. In 2017, we celebrated the 500th anniversary of the Reformation led by the Rev. James F. Cubie, who has served with the Reformed Institute of Metropolitan Washington since 2011 as a member of the Company of Teachers.
