Delegate Lee Carter is a Marine Corp veteran who was elected in 2017 to represent part of Prince William County and the City of Manassas.
As a candidate he took the Activate Virginia Pledge to refuse campaign contributions from Dominion Energy and Appalachian Power, a principled stance against donations from regulated utility monopolies he still holds today.
In the House of Delegates he has worked to protect his constituents from dangers posed by the coal ash ponds in Dumfries, introducing legislation to prohibit the disposal of coal combustion residuals except by recycling or beneficial reuse. He has also worked to ensure adequate oversight of the electricity rates Dominion Energy and other regulated utility monopolies charge consumers, voting against the “Grid Modernization Act of 2018” (SB 966) and working with fellow Clean Virginian Champion Delegate Danica Roem on further legislation to reform the State Corporation Commission.
He has been a tireless champion on campaign finance reform and in 2018 was the co-patron of a bill to prohibit the personal use-of campaign funds by all candidates and the co-patron of Delegate Roem’s bill to prohibit campaign contributions from public service corporations.
