Gov. McDonnell statement on Athey House retirement

Governor Bob McDonnell issued the following statement today regarding the announcement that Del. Clifford L. “Clay” Athey, Chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee, will not seek re-election to the House of Delegates this fall:

“Clay has been a trusted representative of his constituents in Warren, Frederick and Fauquier counties, a valued associate, and a good friend during his decade of service to the Commonwealth in the Virginia House of Delegates. His dedication to his constituents is reflective of the type of person he is, and his decision to focus on his young children Madagan and Clayton and his loving wife Stacey demonstrate the values, honesty and focus that have made him a principled and highly effective legislator.

“Clay has been a solid leader and advocate while serving as the vice chairman of the Courts of Justice Committee, and as an active partner on the Education, Health, Welfare and Institutions, and Militia, Police and Public Safety committees.

“His energetic, focused, and strong leadership on a host of issues throughout his tenure has been highly effective in protecting the interests and safety of his constituents and Virginians statewide. Clay’s passion for public service and his keen intellect will be missed in the General Assembly, but will serve as a lasting inspiration to all of those with whom he served.

“I wish Clay the very best in his future endeavors, and thank him for his tremendous service to the people of the Commonwealth.”
