Delaney carrying strong momentum in race for Virginia's 67th House District
CHANTILLY, Va. -- Community leader Karrie Delaney today announced the Virginia Education Association has endorsed her campaign to represent Virginia's 67th House District, which stretches from Chantilly and South Riding to Fair Lakes and Oakton.
“Every General Assembly session, lawmakers are faced with decisions that put special interests over the students and families they represent,” said VEA President Jim Livingston, who also serves as chair of the VEA Fund. “With Karrie Delaney as Delegate, constituents of the 67th District will know their best interests are being represented, especially when it comes to making public education the priority it should be.”
"I'm honored to be endorsed by the Virginia Education Association," stated Delaney. "As the mother of a 7-year-old and 4-year-old, I'm dedicated to bringing home our fair share of education funding to lower class sizes, provide top-notch resources in our classrooms, and retain the best teachers with fair pay and benefits to ensure our children receive a world class education."
