Chatham, VA - Les Adams defeated Elizabeth Jones tonight for the 16th District seat.
The 16th district covers Henry County, Pittsylvania County, and Martinsville.
Adams received 63% percent of the vote against Jones' 37%.
Adams was in Chatham to celebrate his win Tuesday night.
Adams says job creation is his number one focus now that he is Delegate.
"The first thing is to thank all the folks who have been so kind to support me and put their faith in me in this campaign so that will be the first thing I'm doing. And then looking at ways to get to work for them," Adams said.
Adams is taking Don Merricks' seat. He says he has big shoes to fill but he is proud to have earned his support and endorsement.
