The Fairfax County Republican Committee officially endorsed three candidates for the county’s Soil and Water Conservation Board by acclamation Tuesday night in Falls Church, Virginia: Chris Bowen, Jane Dudik and Ed McGovern.
Chris Bowen earned his JD from George Washington University’s law school and clerked for the 7th District Court of Appeals. As a trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice, Mr. Bowen litigated two cases involving extensive soil and water issues.
Jane Dudik holds a PhD in Environmental Science and Policy from George Mason University. As a U.S. Department of Defense contractor, Ms. Dudik has experience coordinating with federal agencies regarding environmental concerns. In addition, she is a volunteer site leader for the Fairfax County Parks Department, coordinating efforts to remove invasive plants and reestablish native plants.
Ed McGovern has a MS in Public and International Affairs from the University of Pittsburgh. Mr. McGovern has worked extensively for the U.S. Department of Defense, both at home and overseas. His work frequently involves the coordination of funding, personnel and policies at federal, state and local levels.
“I am thrilled to endorse our phenomenal slate of candidates for the soil and water conservation board,” Fairfax GOP Chairman Tim Hannigan said today. “Our three candidates are extremely well-qualified and ready to serve on day one.”
