We often hear that more Virginia Democrats should step up and run. One of Virginia's brightest has taken the challenge. Today Jennifer Boysko announced her campaign to unseat Tom Rust in HoD District 86.
Boysko believes that the GA is off-track and that the GOP has employed divisive and unproductive tactics keeping Virginia from her most important issues. Boysko says further hat our daughters deserve to have control over their own bodies; that we must solve the transportation gridlock; that NOVA should receive it's fair share of education, transportation and human service funding from Richmond; and that affordable housing and human services are crucial to the economy and well being of the Commonwealth.
Jennifer has a long history of working for Democratic races, including President Obama's 2008 and 2012 campaigns. Her volunteering has been at the precinct, district, city and State Central Committee levels. She co-founded Dulles Area Dems and helped kicked new life into Democratic efforts in the Dulles area.
Jennifer has served as Legislative and Herndon Aide to Fairfax County Supervisor John Foust. She's contributed to her community and larger NOVA in numerous ways, just of few of which include her leadership in the Herndon HS PTSA, St. Timothy's Church, and the Herndon Fortnightly Club.
Boysko is a generous, tireless worker for Democratic principles and opportunity for all. She's tough but warm, caring and personable. She's got a wonderful family. And she is also a joy to work with.
Today, Jennifer also announced she already has the endorsement of:
*State Senator Janet Howell
*Delegate Ken Plum
*Chairperson of the Board of Supervisors Sharon Bullova
*Dranesville Supervisor John Foust
*Dranesville Planning Commissioner (and former candidate for the 86th) Jay Donahue
