The Senate Committee on Rules met in Richmond last week to choose lawmakers and citizens for a number of state boards and commissions. As part of that process, Virginia State Senator Tammy Mulchi was appointed to serve on multiple groups. 

This year, Mulchi will work with the Virginia Workforce Development Board, the Virginia Small Business Commission, and the Henrietta Lacks Commission.

“I am honored to be appointed by my Senate colleagues to serve on these important bodies that impact the lives of Virginians across the Commonwealth,” said Mulchi.


Let’s go at this one at a time. The Virginia Board of Workforce Development works to increase coordination and operation efficiencies between educational programs with responsibilities and resources for employment, occupational training, and job attainment.

The Virginia Small Business Commission, meanwhile, studies, reports, and makes recommendations on issues of concern to small businesses within the Commonwealth.

“I look forward to continuing to strengthen the work being done in Workforce Development in the state,” Mulchi said. “We have seen the positive and promising results of providing a prepared workforce for current and potential employers in our area. Being a small business owner myself, I will be able to bring real-life experience to the Small Business Commission. I am excited about doing all I can to improve the lives of those who do the hard work of starting and running our small businesses.” 

The Henrietta Lacks Commission was established to sustain the legacy of her life-changing contribution to medical science by advancing cancer research and treatment through the creation of a biomedical research and data center. 

Mulchi was elected to the Senate of Virginia in a January 2024 special election to replace retiring Senator Frank Ruff. Senator Mulchi represents the Ninth District, which includes the counties of Charlotte, Lunenburg, Nottoway, Mecklenburg, Pittsylvania, Halifax, part of Prince Edward, and the city of Danville.
