TRUSTED & RESPECTED LEADERSHIP
Meet Delegate Chris Stolle, M.D.
Delegate from the 83rd House District of Virginia
Chris is a Virginia Beach native who graduated from Cox High School. He and his wife, also a veteran, are both graduates of the US Naval Academy. Together, they raised five children in Virginia Beach and now have two granddaughters. Their children have also chosen lives of service: two active duty military, a lawyer keeping the community safe, and two doctors including another veteran.
Chris began his career in the Submarine Force as a Naval Nuclear Engineer. He later earned his medical degree from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and began practicing as an OB/GYN. After 24 years of service, Chris retired from the Navy, earned an MBA from the College of William and Mary, and started a small business with his sister to reduce newborn fatalities and lower patient care costs. Chris now serves as the Vice President for Medical Affairs and Director of Medical Education for Riverside Health System.
Since he was elected to serve the citizens of Virginia’s 83rdHouse District, Chris has become a trusted and respected leader in the General Assembly. He currently serves on the Appropriations Committee where he is the Transportation Subcommittee Chair, Counties Cities & Towns Committee where he is the Vice Chair, and the Health Welfare & Institutions Committee. Outside of the General Assembly session, Chris serves on the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission, the Joint Commission on Health Care, the Joint Subcommittee on Coastal Flooding, the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization, and the Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission.
Chris believes that we can achieve the most as a community and a Commonwealth by working together and building consensus. Even on the tough issues that divide us, debate and conversation bring about more progress than hostility and partisanship. Chris has spent his time in Richmond building constructive, thoughtful legislation that improves the lives of his constituents and the citizens of the Commonwealth.
