Getting Things Done for Lee District
In Lee District, and in all of Fairfax County, we’ve made great progress and celebrated many accomplishments together, especially in the areas of revitalization, transportation, and community. We’ve also been able to tackle budget challenges amidst one of the toughest economic environments in county history without ruining our quality of life. I believe that my eight years on the Board of Supervisors chairing the Transportation and Legislative Committees have given me the insight and knowledge to deal with some of the most important challenges Lee District will face in the coming years.
Lee District is a wonderful place to live, work, and play. I grew up here, my wife and I are raising our two children here. We have an active and engaged community, great schools, safe neighborhoods, dedicated business partners, parks and green space, and a quality of life second to none.
It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as your Supervisor. I look forward to continuing to do so in the years ahead, and you have my pledge to work to make it even better. I sincerely thank you for your vote and your confidence.
