Rossie D. Alston, Jr., Set To Become Chief Judge

One of the more junior judges on the Prince William County Circuit Court has been selected by his colleagues to become Chief Judge of the Circuit Court for the 31st Judicial District, which covers Prince William County, Manassas, and Manassas Park.

Circuit Court Judge Rossie D. Alston, Jr., a life-long resident of Prince William County, has been elected by his colleagues to replace LeRoy Millette, who has been elevated to the Virginia Court of Appeals by the Governor, subject to legislative confirmation.

Judge Alston was the first Circuit Court Judge selected by local lawmakers when the Republicans became a majority in the Virginia House of Delegates, having been elevated from the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.

He is also a former colleague of mine, and is known as "Uncle Rossie" around the Young household. He is godfather to both of my sons, and a fine choice.

Congratulations, Chief Judge Alston!

Someone thought it would be fun to post multiple, general, derisive comments about my friend. This individual lacked the courage to identify herself, and labels me a "Coward" because I refused to provide her with a forum.

Had you identified yourself, and been somewhat less repetitive, I might have posted your comment. That you lack the courage to do so speaks volumes.
