Democratic State Senator Retires After 38 Years of Service

According to an ABC7 News Report, 87-year-old State Senator Charles J. Colgan (D- Prince William County) announced his plans to retire next year, after his current term is complete.

Colgan is the longest-serving legislator in the General Assembly, and has been serving the Senate since 1976.

Despite Governor McAuliffe’s many attempts to keep him in office, Colgan has rejected the offers.

This leaves Republicans with a one-seat advantage in the Senate, but Democratic Chairman Sen. A. Donald McEachin is confident in his party’s preparation for Colgan’s retirement.
