Montigue Magruder is a Virginian native that was born in Charlottesville and has lived in Richmond since he was 10 years old. His political inspiration came to him in 2010 when he spoke in opposition to fare increases on Richmond's public transit system. He is a member of the Green Party that ran for Richmond City Council in the 2016 Election against two well-known Democrats. Montigue's political advocacy continues to fight for the issues concerning least among us in society. As a former caretaker of elderly and disabled people, Montigue strongly believes that everyone should live a life of dignity and love from birth until death.

Montigue has been an advocate for better public transit for 6 years. He served on the GRTC and Transit Study Task Force. He also worked with VA Organizing, RePHRAME, the Richmond NAACP, and served on the executive board of the Industrial Workers of the World. While running for City Council last year, he realized that a run for state office was the better choice as some constituents pointed out that the issues that he wanted to address required action by the General Assembly .

Montigue decided to run against the incumbent after noting their acceptance of donations from corporations like Dominion Power that make life harder for his fellow Virginians. Many 69th District residents want a delegate who will truly fight for the people. Montigue will help build the greater good for all Virginians.

If elected, Montigue will fight for the following issues:

1) Guaranteed voting rights for all Virginians.
2) The established human right to clean natural resources.
3) Full and fair funding for all school districts.
4) Expanded access to public transportation throughout Virginia.
5) Practical criminal justice reform.

Take Montigue’s hand and ride with him to make his case to the people of Virginia’s 69th district. He will only accept donations from working class people like himself and refuse donations from corporations and Super PACs. Support the man who gives a damn about the people of Virginia's 69th District!

    “I support Montigue Magruder for House of Delegates 69th District because he has a proven track record of fighting for people who get forced out of political decision making processes. Magruder is highly intelligent, able to articulate ideas in ways that resonate with everyday folks, and I stand behind his policy ideas. I think it's time the 69th District have the authentic representation it deserves.”

Our Movement's On The Ground!

I know it's been a while since I've last updated y'all on my campaign progress. That's how things get sometimes! A dedication of time, materials, and a drive to show why OUR plan to Build the Greater Good is required if we are to win this election. As such, I have already begun canvassing certain areas of the 69th District, but I have put out the call for volunteers to help canvass. And yes, I did make the ballot for the November General election!

My campaign website ( should be up and running this week! I am also in the process of designing campaign signs that I will order this week. Because of your generous donation, I am able to do both of these things as well as help some people expand their resumes!

I ask of you to endorse and share this campaign with all peoples in your networks. The more we spread our message, the greater our impact in this election! If you'd like to help canvass or would like a campaign sign, please contact me at or call me at (804) 573-4173.
