A Legend Retires

Hard to believe that Lacey Putney (I-Bedford) will finally be stepping down.

If I’m not mistaken, he was first elected in 1961.  The majority of lawmakers weren’t even born on that date.  He was a great Appropriations Chair and was instrumental in updating our VRS system a couple years ago, so it didn’t collapse from insolvency.   Mostly he was known as the ultimate Southern gentleman.

Those will be mighty big shoes to fill for the next Delegate from Bedford.
