There are some significant changes happening in Virginia already.
Glenn Youngkin’s administration has been in office for about 48 hours and some big changes have already happened.
In addition to a bunch of Executive Orders to reverse the government overreach of the last administration, 30 AG staff members have been sent packing.

On Youngkin’s first day in office, he issued 11 executive orders.
He was not the only one making a big splash, however.
Attorney General Jason Miyares has also gotten rid of some dead weight.
It is safe to say that Miyares and former AG Herring have a bit of a different vision as to how the department should be run.
As such, 30 staffers, including 17 attorneys, were sent packing.
Miyares spokesperson Victoria LaCivita stated, “During the campaign, it was made clear that now-Attorney General-elect Miyares and Attorney General Herring have very different visions for the office. We are restructuring the office, as every incoming AG has done in the past,”
Former AG Herring’s spokesperson Charlotte Gomer responded to the firings, stating, “These are dedicated and professional public servants who do important work, like investigate wrongful convictions, protect Virginians’ civil rights, help to ensure free and fair elections, and prevent human trafficking and opioid abuse.
“Their absence will be a significant loss to the mission of the Office of Attorney General.”
Considering the scandals that we have seen in Virginia the last few years, especially recently involving school boards, I doubt that is the case.
The new administration means business!
