     RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Another state lawmaker is opposing the reappointment of University of Virginia Rector Helen Dragas.
    Sen. Barbara A. Favola declared her opposition on Wednesday.
     The Arlington County Democrat says in a statement that Dragas didn't demonstrate values needed to lead U.Va. to new heights.
     Favola also cited concerns about the university being put on warning by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission.
     The accrediting agency issued the warning over the Board of Visitors' failed attempt to fire President Teresa Sullivan last summer.
     Several other lawmakers have said they would oppose Dragas' reappointment.
     The General Assembly will consider the reappointment when it convenes this month.
