CHANTILLY, Va. -- Community leader Karrie Delaney shined in the League of Women Voters' Western Fairfax House District Forum this afternoon, laying out her vision to rise above the partisan politics in Richmond, and find real solutions to make Northern Virginia the best place to live, raise a family, and start a business.
Will Van Nuys, Campaign Manger for Karrie Delaney, stated, "This afternoon Karrie Delaney laid out her vision to serve Virginia's 67th District by putting people before politics, proving why Republicans and Democrats have appointed her to multiple positions throughout her career of public service."
Van Nuys continued, "While Jim LeMunyon did not attend the event, he has continued to show time and time again that his true loyalty lies with Richmond politicians and special interest groups rather than the people of Northern Virginia, and refuses to explain his votes against expanding access to affordable health care to 400,000 Virginians or full-day Kindergarten for the children of Loudoun County."
"When it comes to standing up for the people of Virginia's 67th District, Karrie Delaney has the leadership experience to fight for Northern Virginia's fair share of education funding, comprehensive transportation solutions, innovative economic growth, and health care for all. That is why 19 different organizations, including the Virginia Education Association and Virginia Professional Fire Fighters, have endorsed Karrie Delaney for Delegate in Virginia's 67th House District."
