See below for a press release from Sandy Anderson, a Democrat running for Fairfax County School Board from the Springfield magisterial district. Anderson is endorsed by Fairfax County School Board member Laura Jane Cohen, who has represented the Springfield district since her election in 2019, when she defeated right-wing-Republican Elizabeth Schultz (now in the Youngkin administration, despite – or because of? – being a bigot, crackpot, extremist, etc.) 50.5%-41.9%. Of course, the fact that Schultz ever was elected from this district shows that it’s not safely “blue,” so we should definitely not take this November’s election for granted!
