Delegate Day:
Loving his Locale all the Way to Richmond

Delegate Barnie Day with Wife Debbie

by Su Clauson-Wicker

Virginia Delegate Barnie Day has degrees from Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill and experience as a journalist, county administrator, and asparagus farmer. But his philosophy as the owner of a general store in rural Patrick County may serve him just as well in his new job as Virginia delegate for the 10th District.

"You just have to show up and work hard every day and try to do better the next day," he says. Until January, Day, 44, was a Patrick County supervisor, interacting with Anderson & Associates on projects that included simulations for the Woods Brothers Racing Museum. But on January 14, he won the House of Delegates seat in a special election against his friend and fellow supervisor, Republican Philip Plaster. He ended a game of musical chairs that began when Virgil Goode was elected to U.S. House of Representatives and Roscoe Reynolds won Goode’s state senate seat, leaving the delegate spot open.

Day, a Democrat, says his strong promotion of education funding won the delegate seat. In his finger-shaped district, which extends 135 miles from the stoplight in Hillsville to Danville, education, transportation, and concern about the environment are key issues. Day pushed for continued progress on the widening of U.S. 58 in the district. He also says people in the 10th District, which includes the Blue Ridge Parkway, realize that you can’t sustain a prosperous economy on the back of a depleted environment and are concerned about preserving what they have.
