Clinton has been serving his community his entire adult life: staying active in local Civic Leagues, churches, and various other community organizations. He has also been a leader in the local Democratic Party, currently as the DPVA’s Chair of the 3rd Congressional District.

A strong commitment to service has defined Clinton’s involvement in his community. He knows the needs and concerns of the people of the 76th District because he has seen and heard them firsthand. He is committed to standing up for their best interests in Richmond once elected.
