Local Del. Bobby Orrock has introduced a bill that would give localities the ability to create affordable housing zoning districts.
Orrock, R–Caroline, has also introduced a joint resolution that, if approved, would direct the Virginia Housing Commission to come up with a statewide common definition of “affordable housing.”
Del. Bobby Orrock had never held public office before he defeated a five-term delegate to win the 54th District House seat in 1989.
Now the Republican, who has represented parts of Caroline and Spotsylvania counties ever since, is facing Democrat challenger Neri Canahui–Ortiz, who is running for public office for the first time.
