Annette Hyde

Annette and her husband have lived in Virginia for over 30 years, first settling in Western Fairfax, where their children attended Fairfax County Public Schools. They moved to Madison in 2013.

Annette is a founding member of our local chapter of Moms Demand Action. The Madison County Board of Supervisors appointed her to the Virginia Career Works – Piedmont Workforce Development Board. She’s a member of the State Rehabilitation Council for the Virginia Department of the Blind and Visually Impaired. She volunteers with the Virginia Department of Health’s Medical Reserve Corps. She served weekly at a COVID-19 Call Center last spring and recently, directing traffic at mass vaccination sites in Culpeper.

In 2019, she ran against one of the most powerful Senators in Virginia, Emmett Hanger, helping to flip the General Assembly to Democratic control for the first time since 1993, leading to the passage of some of the most progressive legislation in a generation. Annette knows we must expand that majority in the House of Delegates, so Virginia not only doesn’t return to that regressive past, but rural Democrats have seats at the table.

It’s time to have a delegate who cares and works for all constituents instead of using them to further their political ambition. We need a delegate who believes in government. Annette’s life experiences and her love for the people of rural Virginia will make a powerful difference in the General Assembly. Our Commonwealth is built on rural Virginia, and their voices must be heard.
