Amanda Chase, candidate for the 11th State Senate District

Amanda Freeman Chase, Republican candidate for the Virginia State Senate for District 11, grew up in Chesterfield County, is married to her high school sweetheart, and is a mother to four teenagers.

She is a small business owner and has worked in both the private and public sectors.  Chase is a graduate of Monacan High School and of Virginia Tech, graduating in the top ten percent of her class, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business, double majoring in Corporate Finance and Business Management.

After graduation, Chase married her husband of 22 years, and began a career in the banking, credit, and finance industry.  During this time Chase worked for Fortune 500 companies such as Circuit City and Capital One, as well as in state government under Gov. George Allen. Chase was serving in a management position at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, when she made the decision to stay home with her children while they were young. She then embarked on a new chapter of her life and began homeschooling her four children for the next 9 years. All of her children are now teenagers and currently attend or have graduated from Chesterfield County public schools.  Her oldest currently attends, and is on the President’s List, at James Madison University.  Her family worships at Clover Hill Assembly of God.

During this time, Chase became the neighborhood swim coach and was made aware of a local zoning issue that affected the safety of the children in her neighborhood.  She served on a neighborhood steering committee that led efforts in the neighborhood to protect the community, and they were successful in their efforts.
This sparked her determination to be engaged in grassroots issues, and over the years she quickly rose to leadership positions working for Congressman Randy Forbes, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, Governor Bob McDonnell and former Majority Leader Congressman Eric Cantor.
Chase soon began a campaign management company to help principled grassroots conservatives run for office.  She helped 23 different candidates in their races for local, state and federal offices. This along with her financial services business that she began with her husband in 2013 has kept her busy and out in the community meeting people in the 11th District.
AC_headshotChase has a reputation for getting the job done.  She understands the demands and challenges of growing a business, generating revenue and will work hard to protect small business owners by looking for ways to lower taxes and eliminate fees that hurt small businesses.

“I’m in touch with what everyday families are going through.  Whether I’m sitting in the bleachers watching my kids play ball or sitting across the kitchen table from a couple wanting to improve their financial situation; I get it because I live it.  Once in the state senate, I will advocate for the people who are tired of electing people who use the position as a tool to advance themselves or their business.  My job is to represent the people and put the interests of the people that I serve ahead of my own.”
