Danica Roem

Virginia House Delegate
Danica Roem is the Delegate representing the 13th District in the Virginia House of Delegates. Roem is a 33-year-old step-mom, lifelong resident of Manassas, and the former lead reporter of The Gainesville Times. She ran for office to bring a reporter's eye to Richmond and to speak truth to power.
Roem’s inspiring and transformative campaign gained national and international attention as the first out transgender woman elected to a state legislature. Her victory was secured by sticking to the issues that matter most to her constituents, and never shying away from standing up for justice, and now Roem is blazing a new and unique trail.
During her first legislative session this year, she was proud to champion bills important to her constituents, and to help expand Medicaid to 400,000 people across Virginia. She continues to work every day to represent everyone in the 13th District.
