Meet Creigh

Senator Deeds’ public service career spans over 30 years, beginning when he was elected Commonwealth’s Attorney of Bath County.

Four years later, he won a seat in the Virginia House of Delegates, where he served for a decade. In 2001, he was elected to the State Senate, where he still serves to this day.

Senator Deeds is a champion for mental healthcare reform, a staunch advocate and protector of our environment and natural resources, and a leading voice in making the Commonwealth more welcoming and equitable–regardless of what you look like or who you love.

He serves on five Senate committees (Privileges and Elections, Finance and Appropriations, Commerce and Labor, Rules, and Judiciary co-chair) to fight for Central and Western Virginia and our shared Democratic values.

Creigh attended Bath County High School, followed by Concord College for his undergraduate work and Wake Forest University for his law degree. He is a father of four, a lawyer in private practice, and lives in Charlottesville with his wife, Siobhan.
