Why I’m Running
Because I believe in our neighborhoods and families, I am proud to be the Republican nominee for Fairfax County Supervisor for the Dranesville District. My opponent is long-time incumbent John Foust.
I am running to make government work better:
- Improve the growing traffic problems;
- Protect our students and schools;
- Spend our tax dollars responsibly;
- Fight corruption in Fairfax County through transparency;
- Assist President Trump in addressing the problem of illegal immigrants.
John Foust has served for 12 years and has failed to address our needs. I believe in term limits on all elected officials and pledge to serve no more than two terms.
