Northern Virginia has become ground zero for an ideology driven agenda that’s wants to re-create society, disempower families, and promotes a narrative that puts a small group of elites in charge of your destiny.
Very often these days those of us who disagree with that ideology, are slurred with name calling.
I believe that’s a big part of the problem with politics these days. Narrow doctrine over thoughtful action.
I’m running for Fairfax supervisor in the Dranesville district because we have real problems. But the growing division and incivility of our politics make it almost impossible to solve those problems.
Rising crime, the declining quality of our schools, unmanaged growth, and the high cost of living here — these aren’t left wing issues or right wing issues. They’re problems eroding the quality of life for all of us who make this special corner of America home.
My wife and I have built a business here, and raised a family here. We love Fairfax County and we love the people. I believe that under all the anger in our politics today, our shared values can unite us in finding solutions to the problems Fairfax residents face.
As your supervisor, my pledge is that I will always be honest and tell you the truth. I’ll not pursue any agenda other than uniting with others to find practical solutions to the issues that confront us. I’ll work without fear or favor to do the right thing and always remember I work for you, not the other way around.
Thanks for listening. I look forward to meeting you personally along the campaign trail.
