Wagner told Andy, “It’s time to move on. It’s been a great privilege to serve the Commonwealth for 28 years. I thank the voters. I hope I left the Commonwealth better than I found her.”
His office also released a statement about his decision, which states:
It has been one of the highest honors of my life to serve the citizens of the Commonwealth. I want to thank the citizens of Virginia Beach and Norfolk for giving me that privilege of serving them in Virginia’s legislature.
Virginia is a great state, which is why we choose to live here. I just hope that I have left our state a little better off for me having served. However, the time has come to turn my seat over to the next generation to continue to make Virginia a better place for all of us to live and raise our families.
