Senator Jennifer Wexton has been serving the people of Northern Virginia for almost two decades, as a prosecutor, an advocate for children, and a legislator focusing on issues of concern to families. From 2001 to 2005, Jennifer served as an assistant Commonwealth's attorney for Loudoun County, prosecuting felony and misdemeanor criminal and traffic cases in all of the Loudoun courts. She successfully prosecuted hundreds of trials, including the prosecution of criminals who committed domestic violence or sexual offenses. Jennifer went into private practice after her second son was born, but remained committed to public service. She did a significant amount of court-appointed guardian ad litem work.
Jennifer was elected to the Virginia Senate in January 2014, in a special election, to take the 33rd District seat of the newly-elected attorney general, Mark Herring. She was sworn in as senator on January 24, 2014. Jennifer was re-elected in 2015. She has taken her passion for protecting others to the state Senate and has supported legislation that makes our children safer, combats the heroin and opioid epidemics, increases access to health care, prepares our children for jobs of the future, eases traffic congestion, and brings more businesses and jobs to Northern Virginia. During her four-year tenure, she has passed over 40 bills, all with bipartisan support.
