8 of 9 Fairfax County Democratic Supervisors Send Letter to House of Delegates Delegation, Express “deep concern and disappointment” with Ouster of Eileen Filler-Corn as Leader

"[T]his action represents a significant threat to...Fairfax County’s interests in Richmond"


Just in from all the Democratic members of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors (Chair Jeff McKay, Penny Gross, Walter Alcorn, James Walkinshaw, John Foust, Dan Storck, Dalia Palchik, Kathy Smith) except for Supervisor Rodney Lusk (D-Lee District):

  • “We are writing to express our deep concern and disappointment with the recent action taken by the Democratic Caucus to remove Democratic Leader Eileen Filler-Corn from her position.”
  • “While we respect the confidential nature of the vote taken, we have been surprised to learn that members of the Fairfax delegation might have supported removing from leadership the first-ever Speaker of the House of Delegates to come from Fairfax County. Her historical installation as Speaker lifted up so many in our community, but this action represents a significant threat to their and Fairfax County’s interests in Richmond and the clout we were gaining and rightfully deserved.”
  • “As you consider your path forward, we urge you to reflect upon the value of what we had – a Democratic Leader from our community who understands our community.”
