ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn of Northern Virginia’s 41st District is the first woman to be nominated to be the speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates.

Delegate Charniele Herring of Northern Virginia’s 46th District is the first woman and the first African American to be nominated to serve as Majority Leader in the House of Delegates.

Democratic delegates and delegates-elect nominated Filler-Corn Saturday morning during a closed-door caucus meeting.

“It has been my great honor to serve as House Democratic Leader in this momentous year, and I am so grateful for the support of my colleagues. I look forward to working with every single member of the House of Delegates, Democrat and Republican, to move Virginia forward,” said Speaker-designee Filler-Corn, in a statement released by the Virginia House Democratic Caucus.
