Karrie Delaney Shines in Sully Democrats 67th House District Forum

CHANTILLY, Va. -- Community leader Karrie Delaney shined in the Sully Democrats' 67th House District Forum tonight, laying out her vision to stand up for the people of the 67th District and make Richmond work for Northern Virginia.
 
"Jim LeMunyon has proven time and time again that his priority is serving the Richmond special interests who have already given him $30,000 to kickoff 2017," said Will Van Nuys, Campaign Manager for Karrie Delaney or Delegate. "Just this past session, LeMunyon doubled down on his commitment to special interests in Richmond rather than to his constituents in Northern Virginia. He voted against expanding Medicaid, which would have provided an additional 400,000 Virginians with health care and created an additional 30,000 Virginia jobs in the health care sector. He also voted against expanding full-day kindergarten to all children in Loudoun County, which remains one of only three counties in the state not to offer the service to all children within the district."
 
Van Nuys continued, "When it comes to standing up for the people of Virginia's 67th District, Karrie Delaney has the leadership experience and vision 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 she has been endorsed by Congressman Gerry Connolly, Sen. Chap Petersen, Sen. Barbara Favola, 3 County Supervisors, 6 House Delegates, and a number of activist groups and labor unions."
