Fairfax GOP Endorses Commonsense, Reform-Minded School Board Candidates

GOP Slate Brings ‘Fresh Ideas to Fairfax County,’ Says Chairman Steve Knotts

Voting members of the Fairfax GOP filled the room last night to consider endorsements in Fairfax County’s critical races for school board. After the votes were tallied, the following endorsees were announced:

  • Cassandra Aucoin (At-Large)
  • Saundra Davis (At-Large)
  • Priscilla DeStefano (Braddock District)
  • Paul Bartkowski (Dranesville District)
  • Harry Jackson (Hunter Mill District)
  • Kristin Ball (Mason District)
  • Stori Zimmerman (Mount Vernon District)
  • Tony Sabio (Providence District)
  • Debra Tisler (Springfield District)
  • Cindy Walsh (Sully District)

Fairfax GOP Chairman Steve Knotts congratulated the newly-endorsed candidates in a tweet last night: “We added 13 great candidates to our roster tonight who are bringing fresh ideas to Fairfax County — on to victory in November!”

This morning, Fairfax GOP Vice Chairman Nick Andersen joined WMAL’s O’Connor & Company to discuss last night’s results and the importance of this year’s local elections. “We endorsed our candidates last night to give voters a true alternative,” Andersen said. “They deserve a lot more and they deserve better than what they’ve gotten from this woke, out-of-touch, all-Democrat school board these last four years.”

The Fairfax GOP’s candidates all share a commonsense vision of reform that would get our county schools back on track, Andersen told WMAL co-hosts Larry O’Connor and Mercedes Schlapp:

  • Refocus on core academics and student achievement
  • Restore safety and order in our county schools
  • Insist that school officials work with families, not against them
  • Demonstrate real transparency and respect for county taxpayers

In addition to school board candidates, the Fairfax GOP nominated three candidates for county board last night:

  • Indira Massey (Hunter Mill District)
  • Richard Hayden (Mount Vernon District)
  • Brian Murphy (Providence District)
