State Del. David Ramadan (R-87th) was recently selected as the 2014 Legislator of the Year by the Virginia Council of Chapters, Military Officers Association of America (MOAA).
Ramadan represents parts of Loudoun and the northernmost part of Prince William and the Haymarket area.
He was selected for working to create legislation that will extend real estate tax relief to spouses of military personnel killed in action.
He has spent two years working to get the measure on November's ballot so individuals can vote to amend Virginia’s Constitution and grant the tax exemption.
Each year the 18 Virginia chapters of the MOOA look at the contributions made in support of veterans, retirees, active military and their family members by members of the Virginia General Assembly when selecting the Legislator of the Year.
A formal presentation ceremony will be held on May 21 at Fort Myer.
