“It is with great enthusiasm that I endorse Tim Griffin for Lynchburg Commonwealth’s Attorney. Over the course of the past year, I have spent time with Tim on the campaign trail and share his passion for keeping local communities safe while upholding Virginia values. I know that his decision to run did not come lightly but I am convinced of his call to service in representing the people of Lynchburg.”
