Ken Cuccinelli has been a member of the Virginia Senate since 2002. His experience as a small business owner and an attorney has uniquely prepared him for his role in the General Assembly where he serves on the influential Senate Courts of Justice Committee. As a state senator, Ken Cuccinelli has led the fight to defend constitutional rights, stop tax increases, protect life and families, and keep Virginia a low-regulation and pro-business state.
In the 2005, 2006 and 2007 Legislative Sessions, Ken worked tirelessly to pass meaningful eminent domain laws that now prevent local and state governments from taking private homes and businesses for developers' projects instead of for true public uses. Ken also has a strong record of supporting our police officers as they protect our communities. He passed legislation that stopped local governments from unfairly exploiting our law enforcement officers' overtime work.
Ken is a small business owner and partner in the law firm of Cuccinelli & Day, PLLC, in Fairfax. He is a business law attorney with a particular focus on serving as an outsourced general counsel to small and mid-sized companies.
