Post Endorses Sharon Bulova


Sharon Bulova

Fairfax County Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova has added another endorsement to her collection.  The Washington Post called Bulova’s re-election “an easy choice for voters” and said that, “If any elected official in Northern Virginia deserves to be returned to office Nov. 8, it’s Ms. Bulova.”

The editorial points to Chairman Bulova’s record of responsible fiscal stewardship and her cooperative, collaborative style as reasons for supporting her.

“I am very honored to have the endorsement of the Washington Post,” Bulova said. “I see it not just as an endorsement of my record, but also encouragement to continue our Board’s positive direction during the next four years. I will continue to ensure that Fairfax County remains the best place in the country to live, work, play and grow older comfortably.”

“With her gracious, civil, inclusive political style, two decades of previous experience on the board and mastery of the county’s $6 billion budget, Ms. Bulova is indisputably the right person in the right job at the right time,” according to the editorial. “Her trademark, as the board’s chair and as a district supervisor for 21 years before that, has been to stick to her guns while working collaboratively with her colleagues.”

The Washington Post is the latest in a string of endorsements announced over the past week. Other organizations that have backed Bulova’s re-election bid are:

  • the Fairfax Education Association,
  • the Fairfax County League of Conservation Voters,
  • the Apartment and Office Building Association of Metropolitan Washington,
  • the Northern Virginia Realtors Association,
  • the Fairfax Chamber of Commerce,
  • the International Association of Firefighters Local 2068,
  • the Fairfax Coalition of Police IUPA Local 5000,
  • the Northern Virginia Labor Federation, and
  • the Service Employees International Union Local 5 (the Fairfax County Government Employees Union).
