Former Delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy Announces Candidacy for  Virginia State Senate in 33rd District

Carroll Foy Also Announces Broad Coalition of Local Leaders Backing Her Candidacy

WOODBRIDGE, VA – Today, former Delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy announced her candidacy for State Senate in Virginia’s 33rd District, which includes Prince William and Fairfax Counties. Carroll Foy is the first candidate to officially enter the race.  

“I have always dedicated my life to service – whether it was at Virginia Military institute, as a foster mom, as a public defender, or as Delegate, where I fought to deliver real results for Virginians – including ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment, expanding Medicaid and broadband, raising the minimum wage, cleaning up toxic coal ash, helping veterans open small businesses, and investing millions into transportation, education, and affordable housing in Northern Virginia,” said former Delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy. “But we are at a critical moment here in Virginia, and the bottom line is Virginia’s progress must be moved forward, not rolled back. That’s why I’m again stepping up to serve my community as a candidate for state Senate in Virginia’s 33rd District. My commitment to Virginia has never wavered, and I will work hard to build a better Virginia for everyone.”

Carroll Foy is a career public servant. She was born and raised in Petersburg, Virginia, was one of the first women to graduate from Virginia Military Institute, and became a foster mom and public defender. She flipped Virginia’s 2nd House District from red to blue while pregnant with twins, and as Delegate, championed the Equal Rights Amendment and helped expand Medicaid to 500,000 Virginians.
