UPDATE by Lowell 8/3/13: Check out the photos, here and on the “flip” – by the apparently omnipresent Catherine S. Read – from today’s office opening. Great to see Virginia’s next Attorney General, Mark Herring, there supporting Atif Qarni as he work to defeat the atrocious Del. “Sideshow” Bob Marshall.
Atif Qarni for the 13th District of Virginia’s House of Delegates to Host Office Opening on August 3rd
MANASSAS – On Saturday August 3rd, Democratic Candidate Atif Qarni, along with Senator Mark Herring, Delegate Sickles and other supporters will host an office opening at 11am at their new campaign office located at 7614 Centreville Rd, Manassas, VA 20111.
Atif Qarni is the Democratic nominee for the 13th District of Virginia’s House of Delegates. He was a Marine for eight years, including a tour in Iraq in 2003 in which he was one of the first to enter Baghdad. He is currently an eighth grade math teacher at nearby Beville Middle School as well as actively involved in his community. He lives in Manassas with his wife and two young sons.
Atif Qarni is running for the House of Delegates because he believes our district needs a new representative, one who will focus on important issues like creating good paying jobs, reducing traffic and congestion and making sure our schools are the best they can be.
Qarni wants to continue his record of service by representing the 13th District in the House of Delegates and to focus on the needs of the district and of Virginia, instead of a personal extreme right wing social agenda. He is challenging Republican Delegate Bob Marshall who opposed the bipartisan transportation plan, has voted to cut hundreds of million dollars from school funding, and who is a leader in the effort to restrict access to family planning services for Virginia women.
