Meet the Senator: 

Senator Tom Garrett was elected in the 22nd Senate District in November, 2011.  Raised in Louisa County, he earned his Bachelor and Law degrees from the University of Richmond, and served in the United States Army for six years.  Tom was previously elected Louisa County's Commonwealth's Attorney in 2007, defeating a two-term incumbent by an overwhelming margin and becoming the first Republican elected countywide in Louisa since Reconstruction.  During his term as Commonwealth's Attorney, Tom prosecuted cases at all levels and won record sentences for the most severe crimes.  Today, Tom brings his law-and-order focus and conservative ideals to his work in the Virginia Senate, where he fights for the families of the 22nd District.
