Charles Colgan, longest-serving member of Va. Senate, dies at 90
Mary C. Finnigan tells The Washington Post that her father died Tuesday at a hospice center in Aldie. He was 90.
Colgan was the founder of Colgan Air, a regional commuter airline based in Manassas. He was first elected to the Virginia senate in 1975. He retired in January 2016 after having served in Prince William County, a swing county that supports Republicans and Democrats.
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said in a statement that Colgan's bipartisan approach should serve as an example to all in the Virginia Senate.
