There’s a reason Colin Harris is running for Delegate at the age of 22: the old ways aren’t working, and Richmond has gotten too comfortable with gridlock, divisiveness and partisanship.

Colin Harris is different. He’s not partisan — having worked for both Democrats in the U.S. Senate and Republicans in the U.S. House. He also worked at the Office of Management and Budget. Locally, Colin has been active in Fauquier County politics since he was 16. Colin will consider every issue that affects our Commonwealth on its merits, and will do what is best for the 18th District — not what is best for the Richmond party bosses.

Colin Harris lives in Orlean, Virginia, and graduates from Dartmouth College with a major in Government. He will be working for Aurora Flight Sciences, an aerospace company located in Manassas, upon his graduation.

Colin is an avid hunter, fisherman, and gun collector, having begun hunting and fishing before he was 12. He is a member of the National Rifle Association. Colin Harris also designs and builds rockets, and represented the United States in the world rocketry championships in Spain in 2008. He is a member of the National Association of Rocketry. In addition, Colin is a musician, and while in college hosted a country music radio show: “The Mason-Dixon Line.”

Colin’s father, Scott Harris, has practiced law both in the private sector and in government for thirty-seven years.  His mother, Barbara Harris, practiced law for ten years before deciding to stay home to take care of Colin and his younger sister, Margot.

Colin is a Quaker, just like Revolutionary War General Nathanial Green, and pioneer Daniel Boone — all of whom followed the Quaker tradition and took action to right the wrongs of their times. For Colin, that means standing up against Richmond’s insider politics and partisan gridlock. That’s why he is running to be a different type of Delegate for the 18th district. If you think our government must do better, he hopes you will support him.
