“I want to thank Robert Hurt for his nearly 15 years of service to the Commonwealth.  From his time in the Virginia General Assembly to the U.S. House of Representatives, Robert was always a tireless advocate for his constituents.  He served with humility and distinction, and exemplifies a true public servant.  I consider Robert a close, personal friend and wish him, Kathy and their boys the very best in the next steps of their life.”
