If you ask Mike Mullin what he's passionate about, he'll tell you, "Serving the people of the 93rd district. And stopping the school to prison pipeline. And being a great Dad. And being a great husband."
Mike is passionate about a lot of things, and it's one reason he is such a good Delegate for the 93rd District of Virginia. In Mike's first year as a legislator, he passed four bills -- more than any other freshman legislator in the House of Delegates that year. He served on the Counties, Cities and Towns Committee and the Courts of Justice Committee. In his first year, he was most proud of his bill to ensure that people who commit domestic violence aren't eligible for "first offender status" if they have committed other violent felonies. "This bill could help stop the cycle of violence and protect women and children," he says. "It just might save the life of somebody you love."
He excels at turning his experiences and understanding of the communities of the Peninsula into real results for his constituents. In his second year as a legislator, he was reappointed to the Counties, Cities, and Towns Committee and the Courts of Justice Committee, while also serving on the Commerce and Labor Committee. He again passed four bills, with the highlight being a new law to protect victims of human trafficking. Delegate Mullin will serve on the House Select Committee on School Safety for the remainder of 2018.
When Mike isn't in Richmond in session in the House of Delegates, he is a criminal prosecutor and resident of Newport News. He came to the Peninsula as a 17-year-old college freshman at Christopher Newport University and loved the city so much he wanted to raise his family here, so he returned after earning his law degree from The Catholic University. Mike and his wife Laura have three children and live in Kiln Creek. The Mullin family are active long-time members of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church in Newport News.
Mike is a Certified Gang Investigator by the Virginia Gang Investigator's Association and volunteers his time to stop gang violence in our communities. He is a graduate of the Sorensen Institute of Political Leadership and a member of the Christopher Newport University Alumni Society.
Mike supports transparency and will serve with integrity. His personal, gift, and campaign finance disclosures can be found here.
