Virginia Sen. Mark Herring and Del. Mark Sickles were among those who attended Saturday's grand opening of the campaign headquarters of Yorkshire resident Atif Qarni, who has thrown his hat in the figurative ring of candidacy for Virginia's 13th House District. 

Qarni, a Democrat, is running against Republican incumbent Del. Bob Marshall for his seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.   Delegates are elected every two years in the Commonwealth. 

Qarni's new headquarters are located near his Yorkshire home in the eastern part of Prince William County in the new Precise Auto Store at 7614 Centreville Rd. in Manassas. 

“I want to take my record of service as a Marine and my experience as a teacher to be a strong representative for the district that actually focuses on the issues that affect us every day like creating good paying jobs, reducing traffic and congestion and making sure our schools are the best they can be,” Qarni said. 

More than 60 people came out Saturday to support Qarni including fellow candidate Herring who is facing Sen. Mark Obenshain in the Virginia Attorney General Race. 

 “The 13th District deserves a delegate who will focus on solving problems, not on an extreme social agenda,” Herring said. “That’s why I am proud to support Atif Qarni. I know Atif will put his energy and his experience to work to do what’s right for the people of Prince William County and the people of Virginia.”
