Jeanette Hough, one of our 3 Republican-endorsed members of the Fairfax County School Board, has resigned her At-Large seat because her husband has been assigned to a job overseas.
There will be a special election to fill her seat on Tuesday, August 29th.
School Board Member Elizabeth Schultz has called this our “Scalia seat”. The FCSB has a 9-3 Democrat majority. From bloated budgets to raising their own pay to imposing transgender ideology on Fairfax County schoolchildren, they have acted recklessly. We took 2 seats in the 2015 elections, changing the dynamics on the school board. If we lose this special election, we will lose much of the ground we gained in the last 18 months. If we win, we will have a third responsible voice on the board and strengthen our chances of taking more seats in the 2019 regular elections.
The Fairfax County Republican Committee has endorsed Chris Grisafe, a Coast Guard veteran who will be a champion for our students.
(The School Board is a non-partisan office, so all candidates are independent, but the parties choose candidates to endorse.)
Turnout will be extremely low – possibly as low as the single digits. It’s critical that we get out the vote on August 29th!
You’ll be hearing more about this election – for now, check out Chris’s website and look for ways to get involved!
Republican John Adams and Democrat Mark Herring had their first debate for this year’s Attorney General election.
You can watch the video below, but here’s the summary: Only one candidate will actually do the job of AG and uphold the rule of law, and his name is John Adams.
Mark Herring is an activist ideologue who abuses his office to advance a political agenda. John Adams respects Virginia law and will treat the office with dignity.
This morning’s shooting took place in the heart of the 8th Congressional District. We are grateful for the law enforcement officers who put themselves in harm’s way to prevent what could have been a much bigger tragedy. We here in the area get to interact regularly with the Capitol Police and know how outstanding they are.
Please pray for those who were injured and that there will be healing in our nation.
The primary results are in, and we have our Republican ticket for 2017!
ED GILLESPIE for Governor
JILL VOGEL for Lieutenant Governor
JOHN ADAMS for Attorney General
