April 19, 2021

Virginia Beach, VA — Today Virginia Beach City Council Member Michael Berlucchi endorsed Kathy Owens who is running to be the Republican Nominee for House District 82 conditional on sitting Delegate Jason Miyares being elected as the Republican nominee for Attorney General.

Berlucchi said of Owens “I am confident Kathy will take her knowledge and relationships with the Navy, her ability to create, attract, and retain jobs, and her compassionate heart and experience with nonprofits to the General Assembly in Richmond to serve Virginia Beach.”

Kathy is a former Navy Pilot, small business owner, and mom who has dedicated over 30 years to the Virginia Beach community.  Accumulating over 10,000 flight hours as a US Navy and Commercial airline pilot, Kathy also started her own commercial real estate company Beach Development Group (BDG) and is a licensed Class A contractor.  BDG focuses on ‘sustainable developments for the future’ because Kathy understands that good real estate projects create employment opportunities, improve the landscape, and add value to the community. 

Kathy serves on many boards and committees throughout the Commonwealth including the Board of Veteran Services (BVS), Military Economic Development Advisory Committee (MEDAC), and is Vice-Chair of the Virginia War Memorial Foundation (VWMF) and Vice President of the Virginia Beach Central Business District Association (CBDA).

Berlucchi concluded, “I have every confidence that Kathy will make an extraordinary representative for the citizens of Virginia Beach in our General Assembly and I hope you will join me in offering her our full support, thank you.”

The Republican Legislative District Committee for the 82nd House District is in the process of determining the method of nomination. Find out more about Kathy Owens at
