Mark Cole is a Republican member of the Virginia House of Delegates, representing District 88 since 2002.

Prior to his election to the House, Cole served on the Board of Supervisors of Spotsylvania County from 2000-2002. He currently works as a Systems Analyst/Project Manager, and served in the United States Navy.[1]

Issues

Delegate Cole's official website lists his major legislative accomplishments as: "Fought for transportation solutions, cracked down on illegal immigration, supporting our military and veterans, improving education, balancing the state budget, protecting families, supporting law enforcement and emergency services, and defending constitutional rights."[2]

2011 redistricting

After the 2010 Census results were compiled, the General Assembly's Joint Reapportionment Committee chose to share the process on the Internet and allow Virginia voters to leave comments. Virginians will get to comment on how their district lines are drawn through a Web site that allows them to check out the new district maps and voice any concerns.

“We’ll certainly consider any input anyone provides us,” said Del. Mark Cole, R- Fredericksburg.

The Joint Reapportionment Committee met in Richmond to rough out the details of setting up a system to handle 2011 redistricting, when local, state and congressional district lines will be redrawn to reflect the results of the 2010 Census.[3]

Committee assignments

2010- 2012 committees:

  • HB 1666 Hunting permit, special; issued to patients from veterans or military hospitals.
  • HB 2528 Disposition of firearms; no participation in program if individuals are given valuable in exchange.
  • HB 2544 Election recounts; losing candidate may initiate when difference less than 5% of total vote cast.[4]
