Bolger to Challenge Wolf in 10th District

Small business owner and attorney Richard Bolger, a Democrat, announced that he is launching his campaign to represent the middle class families of Virginia’s 10th Congressional District and challenge Congressman Frank Wolf.

Bolger said he has worked for 30 years fixing problems in our community, protecting families' homes from aggressive creditors, bringing residents together to improve street safety and schools. Now, Bolger says, he is running for Congress to bring these same problem solving values to Washington.

The son of a Navy fighter pilot who was an early contributor to NASA’s manned space program, Bolger graduated from American University and George Mason University Law School. Bolger left a career representing large clients and opened his own law practice.

He and Susan, his wife of 35 years, live in Oak Hill. They are the parents of four children, all of whom graduated from, or currently attend, a Virginia public university. His campaign website can be found at http://www.richardbolger.com.
