It’s a great day when you have a legendary civil rights icon in your corner!
Yesterday, State Senator Henry Marsh enthusiastically announced that he was endorsing William Quarles and his campaign for the House of Delegates in the 65th District.
Sen. Marsh rarely makes political endorsements, so his show of support is an overwhelming vote of confidence in the issues William is discussing, the campaign we’re running, and most importantly, the people of our district.
“I have gotten to know William quite well over the past few months, and I’m impressed with what I see,” Marsh said. “He is a former county supervisor, a small business owner, a teacher, a community leader, and a public servant.”
Sen. Marsh first met William during a Democrats Without Borders event earlier this year. He was impressed by William’s dedication to his district and his genuine desire to serve his constituents, and decided to endorse him soon after.
The truth is,” Marsh said, “the 65th District needs William in the House of Delegates, fighting to improve our educational system, fighting to strengthen our economy, fighting to secure equality, and fighting to expand civil rights across the Commonwealth. William is a good man and will make a great legislator.”
William expressed gratitude at the endorsement.
“I am humbled to accept the endorsement of a living legend like Senator Marsh,” He said. “His lifelong dedication to civil rights not only empowered multiple generations of Virginians, but it’s why I’m able to stand here today as a candidate for public office. His work as a mayor, attorney, legislator and advocate is unparalleled and I am honored to receive his support.”
We could not agree more. Sen. Marsh’s endorsement means a lot to us. We are dedicated to expanding equality in both our district and the wider commonwealth, and we have made it our goal to push for a common-sense agenda that we as Democrats can embrace. The kind of goals Sen. Marsh has spent his entire career fighting for.
Thank you for your courage, your tireless efforts and your unparalleled service, Senator!
