Wythe County Delegate Anne B. Crockett-Stark not running for re-election

WYTHEVILLE, VA -

A longtime Wythe County lawmaker and educator plans to end her time at the General Assembly.

6th District Delegate Anne B. Crockett-Stark (R) wrote on her website Wednesday, that she will not run for re-election to the House of Delegates this coming November.

"Having served four terms, I am now moving on to enjoy other adventures that are on my personal "bucket list," Crockett-Stark stated.  "I want to thank the network of family and friends whose support and efforts blessed me and afforded me this great opportunity. It has been such a privilege and a pleasure to serve the Best people in the Commonwealth of Virginia."

Crockett-Stark is in her 8th year serving the 6th District in Richmond.

Prior to her General Assembly service, Crockett-Stark held positions on Wytheville Town Council, and the Wythe County Board of Supervisors.  Her election to Town Council in 1978 made history as the first woman to even win a seat on the council.  In 2003, she became the Wythe County Board of Supervisors' first female chairperson.

Crockett-Stark formed a political power duo in the county with her late husband, Dr. Carl E. Stark, the former longtime Mayor of Wytheville.

Outside of politics, Crockett-Stark found her calling in education.  She served as a language arts teacher and guidance counselor with the Wythe County School System for 32 years.
