NORFOLK, Va. - Del. Joe Lindsey confirmed to News 3 Monday night he plans to resign to pursue a judgeship on Norfolk General District Court.
Lindsey, a Norfolk native, represents Virginia's 90th District. His Norfolk General Assembly colleagues recommended him to the Norfolk Circuit Court judges.
Because the General Assembly is now out of session, those judges pick a judge when there’s a vacancy, which there currently is. When the General Assembly comes back in session early next year, they will have to confirm him.
Lindsey called it “the greatest surprise.”
If all goes to plan, he will submit his letter of resignation by end of business Tuesday.
