Today I am excited to announced that my candidacy for Chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors as been endorsed by the Prince William Education Association Political Action Committee of Educators.
As the father of four and the product of the public education system I know how important schools are to our community. We need to do more to attract and retain the best teachers to Prince William County. We need to make sure our schools are centers of excellence. And we need to make sure our kids are in classrooms, not in trailers. I am honored to have the endorsement of our local teachers in this race to bring our shared new vision to Prince William County.
Last year, before I considered running for office, I was outraged at Chairman Stewart and our board choosing to turn down $17 million in federal funds to be put towards our schools. As Chairman I will not allow reckless political games to ever get in the way of providing the best education we can for our children.
