George Manoli Loupassi (born June 8, 1967, in Richmond, Virginia) is an American politician of the Republican Party. Since 2008 he has been a member of the Virginia House of Delegates. He currently represents the 68th district, made up of parts of the city of Richmond and Chesterfield County.[1]

Personal life and non-political career[edit]

Loupassi was born in Richmond, Virginia. His father was an immigrant from Crete who became a restaurateur and real estate investor.

Loupassi attended St. Christopher's School in Richmond and Washington & Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. He received his Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree at the University of Richmond School of Law.[1]

Loupassi married Rebecca Stewart; they have three children.[1]

Political career[edit]

Loupassi became treasurer of the Richmond Republican Committee in 1998. He was elected to the Richmond City Council in 2000 representing the 1st district in the city's West End. Prior to 2005 the Mayor of Richmond was the City Council's chair, chosen by its members. In that year, the city switched to a directly elected at-large mayor, choosing Douglas Wilder. The Council chair became known as the President of the City Council, and the Council chose Loupassi.

On November 6, 2007, Loupassi defeated independent incumbent Katherine Waddell and was elected to a seat in the Virginia House of Delegates representing portions of Chesterfield County and the City of Richmond.[1]

On February 9, 2009 Delegate Loupassi voted against SB 1105, known as the Indoor Clean Air Act (prohibits smoking in all indoor restaurants and bar and lounge areas in State). The bill was passed with a vote of 59 Y – 39 N.[2]
